E-Book

4e9c9aa52e9d25be6d0ad95abd4be395_1000_1000_0_1In this ten years,some of the school started to use the e-book to replace the traditional books.Most of the books digitized to the digital format.Users can read magazines,news paper,even textbook through E-books.

scholastic-survey-ebook

In a ebook survey,more than 40% of children who have read an ebook.According to a survey made by School Library Journal,56% of school offer ebook in United States.It proves that e-book become a new trend for learning and entertainment.

  • User friendly(provide zoom in,zoom    out,highlight function)
  • Inexpensive(Compare with the textbooks)
  • Students can get a host of learning material and notes through e-book

Drawbacks:

  • Getting myopiaMyopia-300x219
  • Students maybe multi-tasking
  • Too rely on using the technologies products,students might get addiction
  • E-book does not include all of the books

 

My views

books-570x300E-book is really a good product for the students.Students not necessary to bring numerous of physical books.Although E-books may cause myopia,when the students use the E-book correctly,just like adjust the brightness,distance,the influence will be decreased.Using the E-book,the students must bring all of the books,because all of the materials insert in the E-book.They can focus on lessons,because they will not lack of the learning materials.

For me,I am be used to watching and using the physical books,whatever for entertainment or learning.Using the physical books is easier for jotting  notes and more comfortable.It is our generation,using the physical book is our habit.

Future

future-cityBut for the future,teenagers are be used to use the electronic products.So,the e-book  will be accepted by the next generation.And most of the school will trying to use the e-book for teaching.It is more environmental friendly and convenient.

My view

from_my_point_of_view_king_681795Virtual Learning is a new learning way.Students can broaden their knowledge anywhere.They can get a lots of information through the internet.And those materials are adequate and trustworthy.Users can learn the materials immediately.They are not necessary  finding the materials themselves.Also,the characters are similar to the lesson in school.The teacher still teaching the students by podcast.But it can reduce the time of going to school.

Futurecomet-predicts-future-2

The relationship between business and digital technologies

technology_triangle_It is nothing new to see that digital technologies are everywhere.Using technologies can eradicate the problems,increase the efficiency of works.In business,the companies use a host of digital technologies for working,just like using the Visible image conference to communication,cloud service to share the business information.The computer and the work application software become more necessary to complete our work quickly and enhance the quality.In my opinion,the digital technologies are helpers in most of the time.If people use it wrongly,it will become huge hurdles when we working.


Some new trend about the function of digital technologies

Distance Work

workathome
A video linked to youtube! Its about work from home.click here or click the picture

Have you ever heard the remote support application software?It is a new trend of control the computer distantly.It is because you can use the home’s computer connecting to the company’s work computer,so you can complete most of the works in your home.Small Office Home Office is one of the distance work.The definition in investopedia ‘A business that is operated out of a business owner’s residence and can be located in an established office within the residence.’Also,Distance Work become a trend in this society.A research in CT GoodJobs,93% of workers use the Whatsapp once in day;63.3%will use Skype and 61.7% will use Facebook Messenger.

work in home data
In this data,we can see the both sides of advantages and disadvantages when people work distantly.

pros and consBenefits

  1. Reduce the time to commute→avert the rush hour→prevent traffic jams
  2. the working hours become flexible→employee can work anytime they like
  3. sharing information immediately→increase the efficiency

Drawbacks

  1. The computers are easier to be hacked
  2. The employer cannot supervise the rate of progress
  3. If the employees are lack of participation,the progress will be delayed.

My view

Distance Work is a useful method to complete the work quickly.It is because the employee can reduce the time to commute.They just work in home anytime they like.For sure,the employee must be self-discipline.If they facing some technologies difficulties,they can ask for help from the companies’ technical staffs.Just like using the  remote support software to solve the problem distantly.

∝Electronic Commerce(Online shop)

e-commerceThe stereotype of electronic commerce in Techtarget,electronic commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services, or the transmitting of funds or data, over an electronic network, primarily the Internet.Buying products on online shop is being common in recent years.For example−Taobao,QQ Online Shop,Yahoo Auction.Those online shop encourage B2B B2C and C2C (B=Business,2=to,C=Customers) services.Customers can use the electronic fund translate system to pay the money through credit card or point card,even the octopus.

taobao

The most popular of online shop is Taobao which is organized by Jack Ma.In Taobao,we can pay the money through Taobao personal application softwareAlipay.Taobao also develop a new application software which is used in phones.The software require Near field communication(NFC).NFC is the set of protocols that enable electronic devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching the devices together.So,the phone can validate the octopus and pay the products’ prices.Because of the digital technologies,companies and users can stage their own websites and online shops.They can posts the products’ details,contacts’ methods freely.

We can see the trend in this graph of shopping online.The percentage in 2015,nearly all of the U.S users research or shopping online.It shows the importance of those online shops.
