Differences between Computer Input and Output Devices: by Mind Map: Differences between Computer Input and Output Devices:

1. Speakers

1.1. Speakers receive the sound in the form of electric current from the sound card & convert it to sound format. These are used for listening music, chatting , seminars for presentations etc

2. Monitor

2.1. The Monitor is important for learning, because it is how the information that you need to send to the learner will be displayed.

3. Printer

3.1. An output device such as a computer printer can print information from the computer but does not send any information (input) to the computer

4. Web cam

4.1. A webcam is a device that acts as a video camera and sends a video signal into the computer that can be viewed over the Internet

5. Mouse

5.1. A mouse displays a cursor on the screen that is used to make selections and navigate the operating system

6. Keyboard

6.1. an input device such as a computer keyboard is capable of having information sent to the computer, but does not display (output) any information

6.2. Keyboards are important for learning, because it’s the devise you need to input instructions. You can have several types of keyboards from ergonomic (An ergonomic keyboard is a computer keyboard designed with ergonomic considerations to minimize muscle strain and a host of related problems) and even The KinderBoard is a large-key computer keyboard that can assist those with vision or motor-skill impairment, and is an excellent first keyboard for any child. The KinderBoard has big 1" oversized keys and large, bold, easy-to-read numbers and letters.

7. Input Devices

7.1. Any information or data that's entered or sent to the computer to be processed is considered input

7.2. It converts commands to Binary digit

7.3. Input devices are physically interacted with by the user and have buttons, keys, a lens or some other component that is responsible for the actual data input

8. Output Devices

8.1. Output devices are never contacted, are usually larger, and typically have a screen or set of speakers for data output

8.2. It converts binary result to our language

9. USB thumb drive - input and output (read and write!)

9.1. A USB Flash drive is considered a storage medium. Data can be both read, stored, and sent to / from a USB Flash drive, but it does not in itself input or output any data.

10. Word Processors Computer-based accommodations for Dyslexia, a learning disability that affects skills in reading and writing, may not require specialized hardware or software. For example, a person with Dyslexia can benefit from regularly using built-in word processor features such as the following: • Spelling checking • Grammar checking • Font size and color changes These built-in features are relatively low-priced tools that, when used together, provide an alternative to handwritten expression. The use of spelling checkers can allow the person with learning difficulties to remain focused on the task of communication rather than getting bogged down in the process of trying unsuccessfully to identify and correct spelling errors. Many word-processing programs also include tools for outlining thoughts and provide alternative visual formats that may compensate for difficulty with organizing words and ideas. Additionally, color-coded text options and outline capabilities present in many word-processing programs are useful tools for those with difficulty sorting and sequencing thoughts and ideas. A word processor can also be used as a compensatory tool for a person with Dysgraphia, which affects the ability to write. Use of a keyboard may be a viable alternative for an individual who has difficulty expressing his thoughts via handwriting.
