Presentation Transcript
this presentation will
This presentation will:
  • Help you understand how to answer open ended questions which could be asked of you in the exam in relation to the implications of mobile technology.
  • Discuss questions are open ended questions which rely on your knowledge which you should have acquired by reading news articles and experiencing technology.
  • This topic relies on you having good knowledge in the following areas:
    • Wireless Networks
    • Cellular Networks
    • Satellite Communication Systems.
  • This type of question is the daddy of all questions (worth the most amount of marks) and usually appears once or twice in the exam paper.
  • It is usually an essay question that should take you about 20 minutes to write.
  • You will need to discuss the impact and consequences of something, with at least one advantage and disadvantage and include a conclusion.
  • It is a very open question in which you will be marked by the quality of your answer. There are loads of ways this type of question could be answered.
  • You should avoid answer bouncing.
    • E.g. Discuss the impact that tv has had on people.
    • An answer that bounces might look something like this:
      • People watch tv, get hooked, get fat because they aren’t exercising, drain the NHS, cause the Government to raise taxes, people have to pay more in taxes, they can’t afford nice tvs, they lead a boring life.
  • In a past paper this question was asked:
    • Discuss the impact that ICT has had on airline travel.
  • Good answers chose a topic and looked at the advantages and disadvantages and concluded their answer.
  • Bad answers listed out as many things as they could!

example exam questions
Example exam questions
  • Discuss the implications for a child of using a laptop and mobile telephone while on a school trip.
  • You could focus on the following things:
    • Ability to send and receive messages even when abroad.
    • Can contact parents if needed.
    • Child can link mobile to laptop.
  • For each of those points you would need to be able to discuss the implications of being able to do those things.
    • For example, a child can take pictures with their mobile phone and then upload them to their laptop so they can write a field report using their own images instead of downloading them!
    • The cost of connecting to the internet using a mobile phone abroad is expensive so by doing it this way no extra cost is involved.
