I learned that I need to have a password on my wireless rougher. Without a password anyone can peek into my computer and take any information they want. I also learned how a computer system works, and what's the different between data and information to a computer, and how it processes data into information. One thing I didn’t know is all the different kinds of kinds of operating systems are out there. For the longest time I thought Windows was the only one. I also had a lot of fun playing with the different graphic programs. I love playing around with photos and know I will use the paint program more in the future. I know I will use a lot of this information in the future, if not for other classes then work, or my own personal use. Now that I know all of this, I understand my computer a little better, and I don’t hate it everything it shuts down on me. In some ways I don’t blame it, I do put it through a lot.
Some useful advice I could provide to someone is to make sure you have all your information protected on your computer. Don’t leave your computer open to everyone. Don’t be afraid to play around with some programs, you might be surprise on how much stuff one program can do.
I had a lot of fun in this class and I learned a lot. I am sure going to miss this class.
