Ict In the Community.

Extracts from this document...


ICT IN THE COMMUNITY There are many different types of technologies in the community. The different technologies that I have chosen are as follows: * Libraries * Cyber cafes * High speed Internet/Telephone Kiosks * Shopping centre information points In this assignment, I will give you all the information about the technologies listed above. I will start of by telling where they are located and then go on by telling why they are used, who use them and also what is good and bad about these technologies. I hope you will find your useful information. Libraries In this section I am going to talk about the Broad Green library. This library is very close to my house and I go there three times a week. Broad Green Library is Croydon's newest library. It was opened in November 1998, replacing the old Mitcham Road Library, which was demolished. It stands halfway down Canterbury Road, which runs between London Road and Mitcham Road. The library is fully accessible to people with disabilities. It has comfortable study and seating areas, and a stock of nearly thirty thousand items, including videos, wide range of adult and children's books. ...read more.


Cyberzone has also become what is often considered a "gaming cafe" due to its extremely popular games network. Their PCs have a large selection of the latest in Internet and network games as well as some single player games. With their fast PCs and large Internet connection it is easy to play some of the most popular games across the Internet with no lag or modem style slow-down. The games that they have are Half-Life, Half-Life: Counterstrike, Quake, Quakeworld, Quake 2, Quake III arena, Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Doom: All Versions, Tachyon: The Fringe, Freespace 2 and Forsaken. Cyberzone also offers a range of courses for the people. The courses they do are Netwelcome which is designed to dispel the initial anxieties and confusions often associated with the Internet, equipping delegates with the basic knowledge and skills needed to begin using the Net and to communicate via email. They also do a course called Netwelcome+ which designed to enhance the skills learnt on the Netwelcome and to further explore the various tools utilized on the World Wide Web. Usually all kinds of people go there but mostly they are teenagers and young adults. ...read more.


Some cabins do have adverts painted on them but most of them don't. The good thing about this place is that it has the fastest connection to the internet than any other things. They are even faster than the broadband connection that we have at home. In spite all this there can be improvements made. For example, the keyboards used in there are very stiff and small and also different from the ones we use in our daily day lives. So it makes it harder for the user to type or also to find letters. So I would prefer that the government do something about it and try and improve it. Conclusion Basically I was trying to say that ICT has everything to do in our daily life. If we didn't have a computerised borrowing system in the libraries then it would have been too hard and long for us to get books from the library. If we didn't have cyber cafes then it would have been hard for people who don't have computers to go on the internet to do anything. Id we didn't have information centres than it would have been hard for people to find where to go. All this would have led to our lives being harder than it is right now.
