The output we get from any application is commonly referred as ‘file’. Therefore the application for the specific purposes determines the nature of the file.
A folder is a storage space that contains multiple files. We can create files as per the user’s need. For clear understanding, we can take the example of a bookshelf in a library. The individual book can be considered as a ‘file’ and the whole set of books in a shelf can be considered as folders. When we right click on the mouse, the popup menu appears on the screen with multiple options. Select ‘NEW’ option and a secondary menu comes up with another set of options. Select ‘Folder’ option in the menu. You can now save your file(s) in the newly created folder.
More people are using Windows and LINUX operating systems in their computers. We can do many activities like collect notes, draw/paint, create animations /spreadsheets/ word docs/PPTs etc.
We use ‘Guide Board’ to go to the unknown places like that when we ‘On’ the computer click the ‘START’ button at the left corner of the computer, it shows the list of all programs in the computer. Now select the required program and create the required files.
For example if the computer is operating on the Windows OS, we can collect our notes in ‘Notepad’ application and draw pictures in ‘Paint’ application.
As per it’s name we can type notes in ‘Notepad’ and save the created files in a folder. Likewise in the ‘Paint’ app we can draw and edit pictures. With these pictures, let us see how we can create image gallery, animations and graphics easily.
Pictures and audio-visuals gives us more understanding than teaching and writing on the black board. Is it right?
Instead of saying a story like ‘once upon a time there was a king’ we can understand the concept easily by seeing the video and also it registers firmly in the minds of the students. The device which helps in explaining the concepts easily through pictures is known as ‘Visual Communication Device’. For example photos, audio -visuals, drawings, animations all these can be created easily with the help of computer. Cinema is a good example for ‘Visual Communication Device’.
