  1. Discuss the impact of ICT on the way we socialise and interact with each other.

    People usually want to physically see their friends as well.

  4. How ICT impacts on me

    Since then, I used computer every day. My mum saw this then she set me a do?s list and a don?ts list. She thought that I was too addicted to the internet for some reason. This probably is one of the handicaps of how ICT impacts on me. On the other hand, teachers taught us how to use email on the internet since we were small, that leaded me communicating with my school friends during holiday. I thought this was very easy for us; we did not have to ring each other very frequently, we could simply send emails.

  5. Discuss the impact of ICT on the way we socialise and interact with each other

    Facebook makes people staring at the computer for hours and not socialising in an ordinary way, especially teenagers. Worse could be, students appear to not to study because they are addicted into Facebook. To my own opinion, Facebook affects the most in the world. According to the Facebook statistics and facts for 2011, there are 5,000,000,000 active users on Facebook, approximately 1 in 13 people in the world; half of them logged in on any given day of 2011.

    Before completing the final version of my work, it was necessary to produce a draft of both documents. For the draft of my leaflet, I created a four page leaflet.

Page two, I used the information from the internet and brochures to produce a page of filled information. Also on pages three and four I used images from the internet and from brochures as well as relevant information.

  8. Explain the legislation and legal implications of Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 in relation to using and editing graphical images.

    For example if someone took an image off the Family Guy website, reproduced it somewhere else and did not ask permission of the creators, they are breaking the law. They would need to have a liscence for such images to be reproduced. Also if an image is taken and is edited so that it looks nothing like the 1st image it is still illegal, as the base image is still the same and has no lisence.

  10. Effective communication in the workplace.

    It depends on that audience as to what language you use, what approach you have towards them, how you put your words together and how you transfer the message. Cultural differences: any cultural differences need to be addressed and catered for. Cultural differences could be seen as a barrier to communication in some situations, some words or signs that don?t cause offence to one person could seriously offend a person from a different culture. Staff should be trained if working with a variety of people from different cultures and should all know how to address the situation.
