The Impact of ICT on a Person in Employment

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The Impact of ICT on a Person in Employment ICT keeps the world turning, from the keeping us warm to cooking our food; computers play a fundamental part in our lives. Adults in employment use ICT to help meet all of their social, personal and work-related needs and Tim Nash, a secondary school teacher, is just one example of an adult that uses ICT in his day to day life. Tim Nash needs to keep in contact with fellow work colleagues, research information for lessons and keep track of what classes he has on each day. All of these needs are met through the use of ICT, from mobile phones to desktop computers. Tim Nash has a Nokia 6220 on a 12 month Talk anytime 200 with Vodafone. It comes with 200 free minutes a month, at anytime of the day, which he uses to make personal and business calls. The phone comes included with the ability to browse a compact version of the internet called WAP. ...read more.

MSN Hotmail also has the ability to attach documents or other files to E-Mails; he uses this function to send work to other teachers around the city to help them with planning their own lessons. It acts as a quick way to send info. It's third feature is the address book which allows people to store E-Mail addresses of the people he knows. It is easy to access and means that Tim Nash does not have to remember them. However there is an issue with MSN Hotmail; it has a limit on how much memory you can use and should you need more you have to pay a monthly subscription of �14.99 which Tim Nash would not be prepared to pay. Overall, MSN Hotmail is useful as it fulfils his need to communicate with friends and also helps plan his lessons for work. MSN Hotmail is one of the best free E-Mail services available and for this reason I would not recommend another. The other services (G-Mail, Yahoo Mail etc.) ...read more.

Conclusion

Overall, the internet is very useful for Tim Nash as it meets his all his personal needs; from giving him more leisure time that would otherwise be spent in town to speeding up the process of buying food or other products. In my personal opinion however, I would recommend a home broadband set up as the difference in speed between a 4mps internet connection and his current 46.6bps dial up connection is noticeable and will increase the amount of time Tim Nash has to himself after his research. The sites he would need for his research would load a lot quicker thus allowing him to plan lessons in less time. This would meet his personal, social and work-related needs better than his current internet connection does. In conclusion, if it were not for ICT then Tim Nash's life would be much more demanding, he would have a lot less leisure time and keeping in contact with friends would be harder and would take a longer time. This is true for most if not all adults in employment and Tim Nash is just one example of one of these adults. ...read more.
