Open Access Graduate Research Paper


According to Naisbitt <1982) in Megatrends, contemporary life is an everyday encounter with computer technology. When a person wakes in the morning, it is often to the sound of an alarm programmed the previous night. A person answering the phone receives a call relayed through a computer system. Programs produced for television are often combined with visual effects produced through computer enhancement. As people review their mail. many of the bills and letters have been produced with the aid of computers. Merchandise purchased at many stores is checked out using a computer to read and register the price of the items being purchased. Many students attending our schools wear watches that act as miniature computer calculators. Doctors. lawyers, engineers, politicians. accountants, bankers, farmers. and the entire scope of the business world have come to rely on computers.
