Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Impact of ICT on the way Students do things at home and at college/school Throughout recent times, ICT has played a huge part in the world we live in and things have changed drastically. For example, the introduction of faster internet speeds and computers have not only helped in the workplace but at houses throughout the world as well. Nowadays, you would rarely see most people without their mobile phones, which have revolutionised the way many people communicate, whether it's for work or socially related reasons. The 4 technologies I am going to be studying are: USB/MP3 drive, email, mobile phone and digital T.V. (Television). First Technology - USB/MP3 drive The first technology I am going to talk about is my MP3 player that also utilises as a flash USB drive. This technology resides in the storage devices category. Flash USB (Universal Serial Bus) drives allow you to effortlessly transfer files and data between computers through the use of the USB 1.1 or 2.0 technology. MP3 players allow a person to carry music files portably, which allows greater practical uses. Recently, more and more MP3 players and USB drives have begun to use larger storage capabilities e.g. 512 MB and 1 GB storage capacity. Advancements have even increased to some 4 GB storage devices. The advantages of using a USB/MP3 drive are: * You can carry and potentially transfer large files and data between computers with ease and speed reliably. ...read more.

This is extremely useful for circumstantial incidents such as when I may have to hand my coursework in. -Being a way in which I can easily be contacted. -I like to keep track on the latest music, games and football news, so email allows me to do this by letting me sign up to e-zines, which provide me with daily or weekly information. It meets my needs socially by: -Making it possible for me to share my files and images with my friends and families. This is good because then I can share my trips and other important events with them through photos. -Allowing me to set up arrangements with my friends and family for trips or letting me send funny and strange emails to them. -My email address allows me to sign into MSN Messenger, where I can interact with friends and family in real time and this is good when I can't maybe use the phone or some other method of interaction. It meets my work-related needs by: -Letting me contact somebody for any help that is needed e.g. I can contact my school teacher via email if I need help in my coursework. -I can also email my coursework or any other work-related files to my teacher if she needs it for reference, which helps a lot, as I would then rather have to take the hassle of giving it to the teacher in person. ...read more.

Conclusion

The digital television technology meets my needs personally, socially and work-related issues in many ways. It meets my needs personally by: -Giving me a larger variety of channels to choose from, which is very good for my hobby of journalism, as I can look at different methods used in the job through the many news channels. -Entertaining me, as I have a huge hobby of listening to music and watching television shows. This may also cause a problem, as I might watch too much television and therefore, a lot of my school-work may be put into prejudice, as I possibly will put that to one side and just watch the wide variety of DTV channels. It meets my needs socially by: -Allowing me to enjoy better quality TV shows and football matches with my friends and family, as the previous quality isn't exactly superb. -I can email my friends and family through the use of the DTV technologies, which is useful as I may not have access to the internet at all times and at certain times I could need to use it as a point of emergency contact. It meets my work-related needs by: -Letting me keep up to date with current affairs (through the vast amount of news channels), as I have a general knowledge quiz every week in Business studies. This is good because it helps me to achieve higher marks in my exams. -The interactivity functions of Digital Broadcasting allow me to learn more via the quizzes and general knowledge information they showcase on their interactive pages. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
