Introduction

Report 3B Impact of ICT on an adult in employment, including the effect on working style Introduction My ICT teacher works at Preston manor high school. The type of job he does is teach the students ICT. His job is not 9 till 5 meaning that he does a lot of work at home after work hours. It doesn't affect his life socially or personally since he works very hard and enjoys himself over the weekend. Dell X50 (PDA) - Technology 1 Short for personal digital assistant. Although PDA's are touch screen, they also act like electronic diaries with a built in computer. It is used as a diary and to organize many things like; birthdays and anniversaries. Advantages * Quick and easy way of organizing himself * Enables him to plan lessons * No confusion * Registers on pocket excel using his PDA * Can store student marks and reports * Portable, which allows lesson planning anywhere any time. * Very small and compact * Used as a backup device since it stores mobile phone numbers incase he looses mobile phone. Disadvantages * Can get stolen at work by students, since it is a good piece of equipment * If you loose it then you loose all the data on it. ...read more.

* Storing large amounts of data, for examples reports and assessment data. * Making lesson resources so that he can teach people how to use excel. * Pocket excel allows him to store spreadsheets on PDA. * Excel 2003 allows him to do more advanced functions. Disadvantages * Quite complex (too many functions) * Not as good as a database since it cant store that much information. * Pocket excel doesn't have many advanced functions and formatting like excel 2003. * Small and hard to use. How the technology meets the needs of the adult professionally and how it has affected the adult's working style. The way that pocket excel meets the needs professionally is that he can handle, store, edit, and also perform calculations on a lot of pupils data. On his pocket excel he can also have registers and assessment data. Furthermore, he can also enter data in a working environment while on the move hence the PDA that he has. The way that it affects his working style is that pocket excel allows him to mobile in the classroom while registering and collecting data, otherwise he has to use paper. ...read more.

Conclusion

However a improvement could be, having video conference so he can communicate from home and work. Personal Personally broadband is good for him because he can download music and videos. He can also use it for however long he like so e-mailing and MSN messaging is great. Broadband is fun but he would like to download more but his 2GB download limit restricts him to do so. Social The way that broadband helps him socially is that he can use instant messenger to chat. In addition, he can do online gaming and even stay online for however long he wants. To evaluate, broadband meets his needs quite well because he doesn't have to move his carry his files across socially and also doesn't need to post messages either. E-mail-Technology 4 Microsoft outlook and Microsoft outlook express are both e-mail programmes. Microsoft Outlook Express is an email and news client bundled with operating systems and the Internet Explorer web browser by Microsoft. Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager from Microsoft designed for e-mail. Mr. Sisulu has Microsoft outlook express on his PDA and he has Microsoft outlook at home, both being very useful to him. Advantages * The advantage of e-mail is that it sends information quickly and cheaply. ...read more.
