Input vs Output Devices by Mind Map: Input vs Output Devices

1. The printer is a useful output device that allows the user create a hard copy of the data they were inputing on the computer.

2. Benefits: A benefit of the printer is the ability to create paper documents of the work being created by the user, such as typing a research paper. The printer creates a secondary backup incase documents are erased or there is a technical issue with the computer. You can't have a technical issue with a hard copy, you can only lose it.

3. Challenges: A major challenge is a printer that is not working. Out of ink or the printer not being properly connected are also challenges that arise when attempting to print.

4. Application to learning: Printing a research document complete with color charts and graphs to explain data being presented. Part of the research paper can include printing out a mind map created on the computer.

6. Output devices are "the pieces of hardware that move information (data that have been processed) out of the computer (Lever-Duffy & McDonald, 2011, p. 114).”

7. Application to learning: A keyboard can be used to type up a research project or have the students work on a computer game that stimulates their mind

8. Challenges: A challenge in the classroom is when a child does not know how to operate a keyboard. They have not learned how to type and it can slow down the lesson that is being taught if the child cannot type.

9. Benefits: kids being able to use the keyboard to look up information on a computer for projects or to type out papers. When a mouse is not operational, there are ways to uses the keyboard to scroll websites and select specific links, so it can be used as an alternative to a mouse that is broken as well.

10. The Keyboard allows the user to input data into the computer such passwords or any typing function.

11. The Keyboard:

12. "Any computer peripheral that you might use to enter data into the computer (Lever-Duffy & McDonald, 2011, p. 114).”
