Input/ Output Devices by Mind Map: Input/ Output Devices

1. Input Devices

1.1. Examples of Input Devices

1.1.1. Keyboards

1.1.1.1. The benefit for adding this device to the classroom is the ability type information to programs, documents, websites, and more. It provides a easier means of creating a document versus using a typewriter. I do not foresee any challenges.

1.1.2. Scanners

1.1.2.1. The benefit for adding this device to the classroom is the ability to copy documents to upload them to the computer to change them or update them. This is also a great way for students to upload pictures to a research paper of presentation. The only challenge I know is making sure the students know how to properly use the device.

1.1.3. Bar Code Readers

1.1.3.1. The benefit for adding this device to the classroom is the ability to teach children about math, completing inventory or managing inventory. The challenge is the cost of the device.

1.2. Definitions of Input Devices

1.2.1. An input device converts incoming data and instructions into a pattern of electrical signals in binary code that are comprehensible to a digital computer.

1.2.2. They also include sensors that provide information about their environment—temperature, pressure, and so forth—to a computer.

1.2.3. Input devices provide input to a computer.

2. Output Devices

2.1. Examples of Output Devices

2.1.1. Printers

2.1.1.1. The benefit for adding this to the classroom is having a way to print the information researched on the computer and having a copier in the classroom. The challenge is affording to purchase the ink cartridges for the printer.

2.1.2. Speakers

2.1.2.1. The benefit for adding this to the classroom is the ability to hear the information being used. A lot of times, I access YouTube to play videos for my students to watch and the speakers provide the means for my students to listen to them. There are no challenges to using this device.

2.1.3. Screens

2.1.3.1. The benefit for adding this device to the classroom is the ability to see the information I access on the computer. It works well with he speakers to allow students to see and hear what they access as well. The only challenge I know is adjusting the screen.

2.2. Defintions of Output Devices

2.2.1. Output devices provide a way for a computer to output data for communication with users or other computers.

2.2.2. The output is what we interact with.

2.2.3. An output device is any peripheral that receives or displays output from a computer.
