Structure of the course1

Structure of the course

  • Block 1 Living in a networked world

  • provides an introduction to ICT systems and to the course

  • It introduces some of the ICT concepts and contexts which you will study in more depth as you progress through the course

  • It also begins to develop your learning, communication and numeric skills

  • This block has three main aims:

  • to explore how ICTs impact upon our everyday lives;

  • to introduce you to ICT systems and some of the ways in which we study them;

  • to get you started on the development of your key skills (a development which will continue throughout the course).

Ian Pearson Future prediction

  • We will quickly move toward the information economy , Computer will become intelligent and thinking machine it will replace the worker with free charge. What will be left are those areas who need a human touch.

  • Worker equipment will have access to the Internet through the satellite.

  • Network base life will affect the home too, I think we may face a day with a bet robot.

  • 2.3 ICT systems at home:

  • Smart home is by integrating the control of home systems (entertainment, lighting, security, heating).

  • The idea of a smart home is to integrate the control of these systems. So, for example, if you are away from home and want to make sure the house is warm for when you get back, you could call the house and switch the central heating on.
