Input & Output Devices by Mind Map: Input & Output Devices

1. Advantages of a data projector is that information gathered from a second connecting device is that information can be recorded and saved. Another advantage is the ease of the connection and the ease of saving and recording and even having the information recorded or saved formatted as needed to be shared as much as possible. A disadvantage with this device is the lack of universal compatibility between devices and the budgets of educational institutions and outlets that can and/or will provide such technologies.

2. A Monitor with an extentions to link a personal monitor to larger screens which can provide view to either an entire room or individual people, the device that collects and sends the data, is an example of a data projector.

3. Data projectors, much like the traditional projectors, work to transmit the data and information from one source (such as the teacher) to other users (such as the students) in either a united or individualized setting (Lever-Duffy & McDonald, 2011).

4. During lectures electronic whiteboards can help auditory and visual learners alike and also adheres to the multimedia and/or modality principles of e-Learning.

5. Elecctronic whiteboards offer the advantabge of spontaneous explanation during teaching, but student and teachers cannot refer back to something after it has been erased (Lever-Duffy & McDonald, 2011).

6. Electronic whiteboards work in the same sense as the traditional blackboards and dry-erase boards, They work by connecting a seperate computer system with an extential computer monitor.

7. Input devices are the devices and means that supply the computer with instruction and data from the user and/or or software and hardware; and output devices take the information and data entered into the computer input devices and present and/or translate it into a type of communication that the user wants or needs (Lever-Duffy & McDonald, 2011) . Below are examples of each.

8. The Difference Between the Two

9. Since INPUT DEVICES deliver a pathway for information to be given to the computer; Electronic Whiteboards have been given as an example of an input device. Following is an application of the electronic whiteboard in learning and teaching.

10. Output devices are generally monitors and printers that can susccessfully connect to computer systems, they deliver the information from the computer to another device, or its user (Lever-Duffy & McDonald, 2011).
