-Communication -Crime Prevention -Employment Opportunities -Learning Online

Communication In modern life so that all her friends could see them, she had to change school over 3 times but she still couldn’t get away from all the bullying so at the end she committed suicide.

In the last years communication has improved very quickly form letters to emails, and social networks. People are improving in all senses in their work; they are working faster so that helps in their private live in coming home earlier and spend more time with their family. IT made communication very easy over the hall world, at work, communicating to family and communicating for meetings or others. It helped a lot in communicating people in a very quick, easy, and cheap way. People that work in businesses are benefited with all the new gadgets like the telephone, internet offers skype which communicating with a camera were you can see the person in real live moment skype is also more personal than if you talk to someone on a telephone , also smart phones which you can send messages from, there is this program that you can download that is called wasap that helps communicating sending messages to another person and these messages get to other person in real live time so it’s

like they are talking to each other but writing. Internet offers social networks like face book, twitter. They help people to communicate or stay in touch, the best thing is that it is all for free and you stay in contact with friends or family all over the world, in facebook you can up load photos, videos or music and you can show all your friends. But IT can also cause problems like when you write an email then there can be misunderstanding because of the way you write, people also spend to much time 0n the internet and at the end they get isolated and never get out of home, so there is no face to face communication in between to persons, people also get bullied like there is case of a girl that got cyber bullied, because she put photos on were she is showing her breasts and then this person took the photos and publicised them on face book

When workers in an office are using all these social networks that help them to work faster a better there can be a problem that they get distracted from these sites talking to their friends or family. There is also a telephone called the blackberry which can be very good or bad, because the messages that you send on some telephones the police can track these messages down but on the blackberry they cant so it is a good thing for people that think they want to be more private with out thinking that the police is listening to what you are writing or who you are talking to, but on the other side it is bad because all the drug dealers use these phones because they know that the police cant get them with it.

Modern leisure and Employment entertainment Opportunities Technology is offering a lot of new employment opportunities, but the only problem is that people have to learn how to use different kind of technologies like different type of programs on the computer, but now days you learn to use the computer when you are still going to school. Every big company nowadays has got huge machinery which makes the work much easier and faster, the machinery is all controlled with computers and these computers need to be controlled by humans. People have to learn how to use these new technologies so in school they are learning how to use the computer in a very early age so that when they get older they can get jobs in big companies,

technologies also gives jobs to people like IT teachers that teach students in schools how to use computers. Technologies make everything much more easily in our daily life; since electricity was invented the world got brightened. Everything works with electricity with out electricity no electronic devices work and so the big machinery stops working and so the people that control these machinery wont have any work. Also in any supermarkets you go now everything works with technology computers, but the only problem of technologies are that they leave a lot of people job less, because all these machineries do all the work that a person was supposed to do, but if the machines do it faster and better they substitute a man for a machine.

Crime and Crime Prevention Now days there is more crime every where and we can not stop it. But IT can help us of preventing crime, it helps police officers in many ways, I will explain in the following. It has helped police mans in a lot of ways, years ago were there was no technology like now days, policeman’s in the early days could only find the criminals in their zone were they worked. Now with all the new gadgets like the heat seeking camera which help policeman’s catch a criminal when they are on the run because they can find the criminal at night even if he is hiding behind bushes, GPS that is for policeman’s to find places very fast , they also have the PNC that is the national police computer which helps identifying criminals by their DNA, fingerprint, or others. Also the cctv cameras help by recording everything what happens on the street and they identify faces of criminals DNA helps a lot because they can find out the identity of a person with only having a hair of the criminal, also the ANPR helps because this came takes up photos of a number plate which helps because they can identify stolen cars or bikes they also can find out if the owner of the car is having a insurance. Police officers also use dogs for tracking down drugs that the police man can’t find; these dogs have an ex-

tremely high sense of smell which is good because they are 80% reliable. But now technology experts have invented a new method that they can use to find a criminal even if they are trying to hide them selves with a new face. All these new technologies help the police officers not only in their work but also in their private life because it helps them to finish their work faster and easier so they can go home and spend more time with their family and at the same time they arrest more an more criminals which makes the world a safer place.

Online Education Online learning provides people with the opportunity to take classes from home. This means that you can work your classes around your schedule, to a certain extent. You don't have to travel to a college campus and take pre-scheduled courses on a strict routine; you can complete your work from home in your free time, after your regular daytime duties are over.

Answer: Advantages of Online Education: Accessibility: Attend online classes from anywhere. Flexibility: Work when it make sense for you - at night, morning, wee-hours. You're not tied to a class schedule (usually) Interpersonal Breadth: Your peers will include students all over the country and even the world. My online students have included military personnel working overseas as well as adults in many countries. Cost: An online education does not require that you relocate to a new place or that you forgo full time work. Documentation: Documents, transcripts, live discussions and training materials are all archived and recorded so that they can be retrieved via mail, e-mail or the school's website for reading, downloading, and printing. Access: Instructors are also available, respond quickly through email, and generally are prepared to work with diverse students with a range of lifestyles and needs. Disadvantages of Online Education: Employment: You may find that you have to discuss the validity of your degree. Information about the school's accreditation and, if needed, copies of syllabi and sample assignments will convince employers.

Communications: Most of your communication will be through email. You might miss the sound of an instructor or peer's voice. Courses: Not all courses of study are easily available online. If you're interested in a more unusual field, you may have difficulty finding a source for online education. In this day and age, online education allows students to access information and their instructors in a variety of different ways. Not only do they have access to text-based lessons, but also to images and videos that can be uploaded by the instructor. It's even possible to set up virtual classrooms where the instructor communicates with his or her class in real time by using a live feed webcam. Also, assignments can be done and submitted online, bypassing the need to print or mail anything. Nowadays, there are many types of online education courses available for different learning styles and levels. Some courses are entirely online while others combine both online and in-class coursework. There are online courses available for college students, adult learners, and even K-12 students. In fact, the National Center for Education Statistics estimates that the number of K-12 students enrolled in online distance learning programs increased by 65 percent from 2002 to 2005.
