Lesson

Task 1 - Input Devices Click to see more

The invention of the computer has had a huge impact on our day-to-day lives, and they are now present everywhere - at home, at work and in education.

The way in which we access computers is usually through an Input device

An input device is any piece of computer hardware used to provide data to a computer system.



Lets try the following tasks:

Tick each task when you have successfully done it in the following list:

Complete the following tasks

Find 3 different examples of Input devices


Task 2 - Input Devices Part 2 Click to see more

How did you do?

Your examples of input devices could have included:

  • keyboard
  • mouse
  • scanner
  • digital camera
  • webcam

Lets try the following tasks:

Tick each task when you have successfully done it in the following list:

Complete the following tasks

Create a New Powerpoint call it'Computer Hardware and Networks'
Add a slide and title it 'Input devices'
Breifly explain what an input device is
Give 3 examples of different input devices
Make sure that you find and image for each device'



Task 3 - Output Devices Click to see more

Output devices

An output device is any piece of computer hardware used to communicate the results of data that has been processed.

Lets try the following tasks:

Tick each task when you have successfully done it in the following list:

Complete the following tasks

Add a slide to you powerpoint and title it 'Output devices'
Breifly explain what an output device is
Give 3 examples of different output devices

Lets look at the learning outcomes and decide which one best describes our current level of understanding :

Tick the one you feel is closest to your level

Learning Outcomes I need to learn how to explain what an input and output device is

  • I have a basic understanding of how I can explain what an input and output device is with a little help from my teacher
  • I can show my teacher that I can explain what an input and output device is without their help.
  • I can explain what an input and output device is independently and I can also explain it to others and can complete any extension tasks I am given.

Task 5 - Processing devices Click to see more

When a computer receives data from an input device (e.g., keyboard), the data goes through an intermediate stage before it's sent to an output device (e.g., monitor). A processing device is any device in a computer that handles the intermediate stage of processing the incoming data.

Some of the most common processing devices in a computer include the following:

  • Central processing unit (CPU)
  • Graphics processing unit (GPU)
  • Motherboard
  • Network card
  • Sound card

Lets try the following tasks:

Tick each task when you have successfully done it in the following list:

Complete the following tasks

Add a slide to you powerpoint and title it 'processing devices'
Briefly explain what a processing device is
Give 3 examples of different processing devices
Create a diagram like the one above with your own example of the the input process output system


Task 6 - Extension Task Click to see more



in the diagram below, we can see that the CPU is the processing device in the input, processing, output diagram.

Input - Process - Output Diagram


Lets try the following tasks:

Tick each task when you have successfully done it in the following list:

Complete the following tasks

Add another slide to your powerpoint called Input Process Output Data'
Create an 'Input - Process - Output' diagram like the one above showing an input device connected to a processing device which is connected to an output device
