Personal use of ICT

How I use ICT as a student Mobile phones: I often use use mobile phones which have many uses like making and receiving calls, entertainment, games, even things like calculators and internet. Mobile phones using analogue or digital cellular technology are also known as cellular phones or wireless phones. Wireless telephone permits telecommunication within a defined area that may include hundreds of square miles using radio waves in the 800 - 900 megahertz (MHz) band. As for 2004, there are more mobile phones than fixed landline phones in the world, and mobile phone operators are increasingly supplanting traditional telephone companies. The disadvantage of a mobile phone is that it may have harmful radiation that could have an ionizing effect on the body cells. This is not definite but the precautionary principle is to be applied. MP3: I have a MP3 player and use it mainly as a portable source of music. MP3 can also be used as a USB stick to save software data on. Short for Mpeg Layer 3, MP3 is an audio compression standard for encoding music files. MP3 files are played via media player software in the computer, such as iTunes or Windows Media Player. MP3 sound quality cannot fully match the original CD, but millions of people consider it "good enough" especially because they can pack thousands of songs into a tiny pocket-sized player. ...read more.


Ovens used in pottery are also known as kilns. An oven used for heating or for industrial processes is called a furnace or industrial oven. The disanvantage of an oven is pretty much the same as the microwave; that it cannot cook foods without water, fats, sugars. Internet: I have internet connection in my house which has many uses such as going on online sites were you can chat to your friends. The Internet is the publicly available worldwide system of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching over the Internet Protocol (IP). It is made up of thousands of other, smaller business, academic, and government networks that provide various information and services, such as by electronic mail, online chat, and on the graphical, interlinked World Wide Web. The disadvantage of a mobile phone is that you get much irrelevant information when you search. MSN: I use MSN to communicate with friends and the major advantage from this is you can talk to many people at once and also it is free. MSN (or Microsoft Network) is an internet service provider and web portal created by Microsoft on August 24, 1995, coinciding with the release of Windows 95. The MSN moniker has since been extended to Microsoft's Hotmail web mail service and the MSN Messenger instant messaging client, as well as other Microsoft-branded websites. ...read more.


Being widely used by businesspeople, educators, and trainers, it is among the most prevalent forms of persuasion technology: according to its vendor, Microsoft Corporation, some 30 million presentations are made with PowerPoint every day. I use this programme to present my ICT work. Computer: A computer is for making or controlling operations that are expressible in or terms. While factually accurate this definition and those found in other dictionaries, are so broad that they fail to differentiate between the many types of historic, contemporary and potential future computers. I use computers in school to research for information. Calculator: A calculator is a small special-purpose device for performing numerical calculations. It should not be confused with a calculating machine. Nowadays many people always have a calculator with them as part of their mobile phone and/or personal digital assistant. Engineers and accountants often make use of calculators for problems where a computation is not complex enough to demand the use of a general-purpose computer. I and other school pupils and students often use calculators for mathematical school work. Printer: Electronic device that accepts text files or images from a computer and transfers them to a medium such as paper or film and it can be connected directly to the computer or indirectly via a network. Printers are classified as impact printers (in which the print medium is physically struck) and non-impact printers. I use printers in school to print the work I have already done on the computer.
