The Impact Of ICT On Me At Home And In School For this assignment I will explain what affect ICT has on my everyday life, I will take aspects of the ICT that I use and I will explain why and how they help me in my day-to-day routine. The ICT technologies that I will include will be: * Internet technologies * Communication technologies * Entertainment technologies * Pc technologies In these technologies I will be explaining the Internet, email, mobile phone, word processing and digital TV. These are things that affect daily life the most, they help me with presenting homework, help me keep in contact with people, and help me to be entertained where ever I go. I also use other technologies in my everyday life at home and at school these range from TV, DVD player, I also use excel and other office software to enable me to complete school work. ICT helps me with an lot of my everyday routine and jobs that I need and have to do during the day, it has a big impact on my life at home and at school as I will now go on to explain. My Personal Use Of ICT At Home Digital TV At home I have ntl digital, I use this for my personal use when I am at home I use it for watching the TV channels that I enjoy watching, which include trouble music channels and the basic channels 1,2,3,4,5. There are down side to having digital TV instead of just the normal channels, these are that some times the service may be down and also that you have ...read more.


* Phone calls * Speed dialling for up to 9 names, which means I don't have to scroll for important numbers. * Last number redial from dialled calls list (dial-key brings out the dialled calls list) * Automatic redial (max 10 attempts) * Automatic answer (works with headset or car kit only) * Call waiting, call hold, call divert, call timer * Automatic and manual network selection * Closed User Group * Conference call (up to 5 participants) * Integrated hands free speaker Over all I think that the nokia 3100 meets my needs but it depends on what tariff that you are on to how expensive it is I am on Vodafone which I find quite cheap, it's a cheap and easy way to communicate with friends, I can have my phone wherever I go and it doesn't take up much room. I think that this phone would be better with an integrated mp3 player and integrated camera. My Personal Use Of ICT At School Word Word is a word processor program which users a computer to create, edit, and print documents. Of all computer applications, word processing is the most common. To perform word processing, you need a computer, a special program called a word processor, and a printer. A word processor enables you to create a document, store it electronically on a disk, display it on a screen, modify it by entering commands and characters from the keyboard, and print it on a printer. The great advantage of word processing over using a typewriter is that you can make changes without retyping the entire document. ...read more.


Addresses are made up in a standard way using the following elements: * User identification e.g. Maryb your name or a name you wish to choose. It is usual to have part of your own name to make it easily identifiable * The @ or at symbol to locate the person * The domain name of the computer receiving your mail e.g. nmit for Northern Melbourne Institute of Tafe * The type of organisation e.g. edu for an educational institution or gov for government * And finally au to locate the address in Australia The final address will look like this: maryb@nmit.edu.au So overall e-mail is cheaper and faster than a letter, less intrusive than a phone call, less hassle than a FAX. Using email, differences in location and time zone are less of an obstacle to communication. There is also evidence that email leads to a more egalitarian information structure. It meets all my needs, I use it on a daily basis to send and receive emails it is a easier way to collect my mail and it could be improved if along with the emails that I get I didn't also get junk mail as well. Conclusion As you can see in the report I have just written I use ict lot within my daily life and it has a bid effect on my lifestyle and I believe that with out the use of ict everyday tasks my be considerably more difficult. O also believes that we will evolve as ict itself evolves and becomes more efficient. Unit 3 (A) Portfolio Report 1: ICT and me Lois Dean 37532 0235 - 2 - ...read more.
