How ICT(Information and Communications Technologies) Tools are Making the World Smaller
The invention of computers has contributed to the world becoming smaller. This is because computers help us to send and receive messages. Now a days, people hold the world in their hands. The computer also helps us to get to market our business on a network called the internet. You can also make video calls and chat with anyone from a different continent.
Also, the introduction of mobile phones have made the world smaller. Someone will ask why? this is because the mobile phone is also an easy way to access people all over the world. You can also send text messages and make a video and take pictures of people you like. You can us the mobile phone to browse the internet and for entertainment such as music, listen to radio etc.
The invention of the video cameras has also united the world and also helped in making the world smaller. The video camera takes pictures of people and loved one. It also stores videos of the past like the late Kwame Nkrumah and the independence of Ghana and Nelson Mandela of South Africa. The camera also passes videos and pictures through a wireless connection. And this helps to make the world smaller.
The introduction of radio has also made the world smaller. This is because the radio helps to transfer information all over the world. You can get information about what is going on at another country. You can share your views on matters concerning you or your country or other countries like Cote d’voire and the Libya crisis. And also for advertisement and listening to music.
The invention of television has also contributed to the world becoming smaller. Someone can ask how? This is because the television sends news live in your room. You can even see your favorite personalities interviewed right in front of your eyes. The 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP was shown to you right in your room as if your were at the place. You can even market your products on the television.
All the above points contribute to the world becoming smaller. Now you an get access to anything you want because the world is now in our own hands.
Form 2 (Grade 8)
Elliott is one of my favorite students in this class. He came the second term and his desire to learn made him stand out the first day he was here. He came to me and asked for notes for the two weeks he had missed. His essay also reflects some of the things Werner and I talked about in the class but I was impressed with his inclusion of world events like the Libyan crisis and Cote d’voire. He was one of the few students who tried to write a summary paragraph. Last his handwriting is neat and easy to read. Because mine is so terrible I always admire neat handwriting and as a teacher I love it when I don’t have to battle with the handwriting to understand the concepts written down.
