3C-The impact of ICT on person with special particular needs Introduction Many people ubiquitously make use of technologies on a daily basis to run with daily activities. Technologies have caused a massive impact on our working style as they allow us to carry out a number of activities. These activities vary from communicating, for entertainment, guidance and furthermore. Technologies have assisted every individual on the whole whether they are in employment, schools, and if they are facing disability. Up till now I have described what technologies I make use of and how it causes an impact on my daily life. I have also written a report on how adults in employment utilize several of technologies and an evaluation on how the technologies facilitate them. Subsequently, in this report I will be writing a detailed description on the technologies operated by an individual who is facing physical disability (This is when a person cannot or finds it difficult to move certain body parts I.E hands and legs. People who suffer from physical disability are those who cannot walk or move affectively. There disability is due to the extent of the damage to the spine, for example one has the ability to walk but cannot move there hands, there are some cases where people cannot move any body parts, this is only when they are paralysed from the neck downwards.). This person needs the assistance via ICT and hence this individual is Maria korelli who cannot walk; therefore she is confined to wheelchair. She works at the Churchill estates housing agency. These agencies initially carry out valuation of properties and sell them on the market associated with Churchill estates agency. Maria korelli makes use of many technologies to assist her in carry out a number of tasks whether it is to word process information using MS word or too move from point A to point B with a specially developed technology such as an electronic wheelchair. ...read more.


Video conference Video conferencing is when you communicate with another person and you can see each other. Many users use video conferencing in the form of a webcam. Video conferencing are extremely useful because they allow users to observe and communicate with one another. When Maria uses a webcam, the people who she allows can see her. This is usually her friends, family and workers. She firstly gains access to video conferencing software named 'net meeting'. From her she can send an invitation for the required people or group of people to view her webcam. Once the webcam is on they can see her live from there computer. Video conferencing is an ideal way to communicate with family who are abroad, friends and workers. Video conference meets Maria's personnel, social and professional needs to a great extent and makes her life progressing and enjoyable. Maria Korelli's- Personnel use of Video conferencing Video conferencing is a very active form of ICT for individual facing physical disability or multiple disabilities. The technology meets Maria's personnel needs significantly because she is able to communicate with family members. It is a similar way of communicating through a mobile phone but is to a great extent, much more enhanced. With video conferencing Maria can visualise users and in the same time communicate. Seeing that Maria cannot walk, paying visits to her family members is difficult for her and thus the video conferencing means of ICT has enabled her to stay in touch with family members that live in the local area or even abroad in her personnel time. Either her or her family member can send an invite in which the digital imaging conference takes place once the parties have accepted the invitation. Maria regularly, video conferences with family members because she is seen to be a loving woman who considers family relationship very important. With video conferencing, she can communicate with family members whenever she decides to and at the comfort of her own armchair. ...read more.


Video conference can allow a person to attend meetings through screens, which both parties can view and hear each other. It is as if the meeting is taking place in front of the disabled person. This technology really aids people with professional needs. Businesses all have the need to communicate with all sorts of different people. One who is physically disabled can use mobile phones to talk to people who they have business with. For example one may work on the online auction site EBAY. They can communicate with their buyers through the phone if necessary. This meets a person's professional need. One who is suffering from speech difficulties may not enjoy going out a lot, in order for that person to experience a normal life he requires his necessity, which may be buying clothes, groceries or new electronic gadgets the internet allows this to take place from home, so one can enjoy life without the need of always going out. As seen on the reports there are many technologies to assist disadvantaged people. ICT will carry to improve technologies for these unfortunate people to try and make life to it's assuage. Life for disabled people is not easy, they go through a lot of agony which makes the situation a lot worse, ICT tries to make this all fade away by inventing technologies that will take their minds of things and let them experience life for what it has to offer not for what it is. ICT's role in meeting both a persons partial and special needs, are at its excellence. ICT allows both people with partial and special needs to enjoy life with the facilities it provides. People with special needs need a lot more of a support from technologies to enable them to do the simplest of things. However ICT has played a major role in disabled peoples life, and they appreciative for it. ?? ?? ?? ?? Zeeshan Zamurred Mr. Sheikh Applied ICT 3C 1 ...read more.
