Transcript: and Software Computers What is Software? What is Software? Computer software is the term for the programs that are used to allow the computer to perform specific tasks. There are two main types of computer software: application software and system software. Application Software Application Software Application software is used to make the experience of using the computer better. It's designed to entertain the user, instead of to benefit the computer. Most of the software on a computer that the user can use or tamper with is application software. Application software isn't necessary to the computer. System Software System Software System software is the software meant to provide a platform for other software. System software enables the computer to perform tasks. Most system software uses a thing called the Graphical User Interface. The graphical user interface is a part of most operating systems that runs over the operating system to make the system easier for the user to operate. The GUI also makes learning new software easier by allowing multiple products to share the same screen. raphical user interface GUI Beginning of Software Beginning of Software Software first came to exist in the late 1960s, but a while before that, in 1935, a man named Alan Turing proposed the theory of software in his essay on Computable Numbers. Before even that, however, Ada Lovelace wrote instructions for the first computer program. Use of Software Over Time Use of Software In the earlier years of computers, computers weren't used much. It was just too expensive and inconvenient to have a room-sized machine like a computer in your house. Computers and software were mainly used to do calculations faster than a person could do by hand, and only by the few who could afford them. Over time, as computers became smaller and less expensive, software began to get more complex to satisfy the wider variety of people using it. Programming software is the variety of languages computer programmers use to program. The languages aren't like digital machine languages (0's and 1's), but actually translate to machine languages used by the computer's CPU. Programming Software Programming Software , of course, is still in use today. We use software for a good amount of reasons. People learn to understand software, use software, and even how to create new software. Software is very important to us today, and will continue to be important for a long time to come.

"a lot of people in my field are going back to school and thats mostly online. typing papers and participating in online forums is huge. in the past 3 years we have gone to total coputer charting; charting, lab reports, and doctors orders all are done on computers "I think the basics of Microsoft office are very important. Also being able to use the internet for research. Also learning to use Photoshop and how to program are bonuses but not required. In my retail job, I don't often use modern and new technology, but maybe after I graduate and my future job I will use it. My Sister Computers and Technology
Transcript: Suggestions for using Digital Presentation Introduction In the modern world, new ways of teaching and helping the students to learn more and relevant materials in a shorter period of time are some of the main concepts educationists and researchers are working upon. The integration of creatively using technology in education has been one of the main challenges to experts. Learning by watching, listening, reading online, or doing are the new techniques that need to be promoted in primary as well as secondary levels of education. One of these digital ways is a digital presentation that can be created and even taught online such as using google slides. Technological use can prompt the students to become more active and participate in the learning process if the use of technology is done creatively which may spark the interests of students. (Fratto, 2011). Use of Slides/Digital Presentation All the given options for promoting active learning in the classroom and helping students not to lose interest in the activities are important and can improve the process; however, digital presentation is the better of them. Different technological techniques such as digital presentation not only enhance students’ learning ability but also increase their interest in the activities. According to Holmes et al., (2015), if the students are asked to use their free time in learning through digital means which may diverse and increase their knowledge about the subject, they can use their classroom time in interactive learning and exploring new technological ways to discuss complex points about their subjects. Digital Presentation could be the best tool in the classroom to use in such situations. (Holmes, et al., 2015). Topic 1 Starting Point of Digital Presentation Learning technology is important for students of all grades and on all levels; however, there should be stages for introducing technology in teaching. For instance, students on the primary level may find it hard to comprehend the meanings of using photos in slides along with or without texts (ABartsch & MCobern, 2003). Students at the secondary level may have the ability to use the combination of graphs, photos, and texts together in slides. Thus, it may be better to use only texts or simple photos and graphs on slides made for the students on the primary level. Topic 2 Text As it is said that for the active learning activity, Digital Presentation is to be used. Though there are several methods to be used online such as google slides, I would use free Prezi templates. Google slides can be a better choice as well; however, for saving our time and using the already made templates, it is easy and better to use Perzi free templates. (Prezibase, n.d.). Technology to be used in Presentation Pictures Activity Outcome This activity because of its uniqueness will be helpful for the students and may play an important role in helping students learn fast. However, the students need to learn how to use different digital presentation mediums to perform better such as google slides, Prezi templates, etc. Topic 3 Make the Presentation Interesting Chart Timeline It is understandable that teachers need to persuade to take interest in the lessons and making the project interesting by using different graphs and photos will create an interest in the pupils. Hence, the presentation will take colorful photos and graphs into consideration so that students will enjoy the lessons and will also learn it easily.
