1. An example of output device would be a printer whether it be laser, ink-jet, or part of a multifunctional device. Printers are great for printing out assignments, reading materials, research, etc. However, the printing out of unnecessary documents can lead to waste of paper and time can have a negative impact on the environment. In addition, it's important that teachers are monitoring printers for misuse. Computers and printers should be utilized for educational purposes, not personal.
