Slide 2

Super Bowl Commercial, 1984

Slide 3

"Why 1984 won't resemble 1984 " 1981 : IBM discharged the IBM " PC " – a " PC " You could have your OWN PC ! Be that as it may, PC " clients " had dependably been developers Write your own product… Managing the PC requires associating with its working framework IBM PC's working framework: Microsoft's DOS " charge line interface " - secretive orders This is " individualized computing " ?

Slide 4

1984: The Macintosh "GUI" " GUI " = " G raphical U ser I nterface" -"point and snap" Then: Now: Steve Jobs , Apple Co-Founder: "a PC for whatever is left of us … "

Slide 5

Where Did Apple Get the Idea? At that point: In 1979 , Steve Jobs had gone by Xerox Corp's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) Saw a demo of a GUI created by a group drove by Alan Kay that was attempting to build up Kay's " Dynabook " thought: a PC, claimed a worked by an individual; versatile – the extent of a journal; Connects remotely to systems empowering correspondence and access to data; with a GUI so natural that even youngsters couldn't just utilize its product, yet even begin creating programming of their own… Now:

Slide 6

Xerox Corp's Big Mistake… Xerox Corporation's administrators couldn't anticipate a business opportunity for a "PC." They crossed out Kay's venture. Steve Jobs, be that as it may, had seen the fate of processing in that 1979 Xerox PARC demo: "inside ten minutes… it was evident to me that all PCs would work like this sometime in the not so distant future." Jobs instantly started working with an Apple group to attempt to make a GUI - driven PC. By 1984, Apple had built up the "Mac" …

Slide 7

Microsoft Windows A year later, in 1985, Microsoft discharged its own GUI working framework: " Windows " 1985: Windows 1.0 : extremely poor 1987: Windows 2.0: somewhat better… 1988: Apple records claim guaranteeing infringement of copyright contended Microsoft had replicated the " look and feel " of the Apple GUI Suit took about 5 years to choose. Generally speaking, Apple lost… In the interim, Windows 3.0 had turned into a suitable OS… The " GUI " has changed processing Although, it is presently Microsoft Windows that rules… The " individual " inferred in " individualized computing " is no more drawn out a PC developer Persons from all kinds of different backgrounds came to utilize PCs…

Slide 8

Now, Over 20 Years Later… Persons like yourselves have truly "grown up" with GUI-driven PCs... Basic comment: "The majority of today's undergrads have had so much experience utilizing PCs that a course like this is an exercise in futility… " So, why does Calvin try to keep offering this course? Also, why are such a variety of different schools & colleges scrambling to present comparative sorts of data innovation courses of their own… ? Here's restricted of getting at this question…

Slide 9

Alan Kay (once more) : Often called "the father of the PC." Kay says, "the PC transformation still hasn't happened yet." For Kay, the " Dynabook " dream stays undiscovered: He imagined the PC as another medium that would empower intense better approaches to make and convey thoughts . Generally, we are essentially doing likewise things with PCs that we did with simple media – print, TV, radio, and so on. We don't utilize PCs in the ways that uncover their remarkable energy to make working models – recreations – of thoughts. Rather, we basically perform extremely restricted cooperations with programming models made by others. Hence, Kay says that the most recent a quarter century GUI-driven "individualized computing" have been what might as well be called " air guitar ." not "PC proficiency" ; rather, the likeness simply knowing how to hold a book and turn pages.

Slide 10

Enfeebled by the GUI –not Empowered… The first GUI thought was to save the client from interacting with the PC's hidden "hardware" utilize secretive phrasings of customary programming dialects. Be that as it may, the business variant of the GUI delivered by Apple and Microsoft likewise created the possibility of the " end client ": PC clients are no more drawn out developers; they are presently just purchasers , who seem just toward the end of the procedure, after the product is as of now delivered by another person. Such clients trust they don't have to move past a shallow comprehension of figuring. Rather, they stay in a condition of captured advancement, interfacing with onscreen deceptions that : they didn't make; show them nothing about the substances of the innovations they are utilizing.

Slide 11

The GUI's End Users are seriously restricted in capacity to find out about data innovation (IT) ; are excessively needy upon IT and IT "specialists" ; respect IT with an uncritical "wonderment" ; are the most hurt when IT frameworks fall flat ; are simple focuses for misuses and assaults by means of IT; are uninformed of the concealed frameworks at work behind the surface deceptions: As the Wizard of Oz instructed, " Pay no regard for that man behind the blind! " Such concealed frameworks screen and control our activities, and shape our reasoning…

Slide 12

End User Denial… as anyone might expect, a standout amongst the most widely recognized qualities of the end client experience is that of tension where innovation is concerned. Strangely, the mechanical culture created by the GUI is with the end goal that by far most of end clients tend to extraordinarily misrepresent their insight into data innovation, toward one of two posts: they definitely think little of what they think about IT – e.g., portray themselves as "PC uneducated," and so forth., or They terribly over state what they think about IT, erroneously guaranteeing: that they definitely know all they have to think about IT; that they made sense of the majority of this all alone; that exclusive PC ignorant people require IT guideline.

Slide 13

Academic Responses Consequently, a quickly rising number of schools & colleges are as of now scrambling to present new sorts of data innovation courses to ensure understudies: not just know how to "get things done" with IT additionally have more strong comprehension of IT And grow better approach for pondering IT . Luckily, Calvin was "on the ball"…

Slide 14

Calvin's New "Center" In the Fall of 2001, Calvin actualized another " Core Curriculum " the school's new vision of its objectives for a "human sciences" training Overall objective of the Core: furnish understudies with chances to create center learning, aptitudes, and ethics . Counting those learning, aptitudes, and ethics identified with data innovation Thus, interestingly, a course in processing would be required for all Calvin understudies…

Slide 15

IDIS 110 and "Aptitudes" IT "aptitudes" = the capacity to utilize PC innovation A continually extending set of IT abilities are getting to be vital for life in this day and age. You'll get a lot of aptitudes in IDIS 110 … but IDIS 110 is not only a PC abilities course…

Slide 16

IDIS 110 and "Information" A little learning of what PCs truly are and how they do what they do enormously reinforces our relationship to IT : What to think and how to react when PCs all of a sudden don't work they way we anticipate that them will. Why and how to take sensible, precaution activity to secure our work, our gear, and our protection. Entire new classifications of PC aptitudes open up to us!

Slide 17

IDIS 110 and "Temperances" True information about PCs additionally empowers us to begin soliciting new and better sorts from inquiries regarding them: We start to set out to ask what these advancements ought to and ought not do. Gets out from under the propensity for review ourselves as simple beneficiaries of what PC industry produces for us. Builds our desires of societal control over IT.

Slide 18

IT Virtues and Your Future We start developing innovation disapproved of temperances in ourselves … Difficult innovation driven inquiries now stand up to businesses, directors, government authorities, clergymen, educators, school-board individuals, guardians, … In the "data age," IT righteousness is an essential piece of our duty to our families, assemblages, groups, assemblies, kindred nationals as stewards of the world that God made.

Slide 19

IDIS 110 " Foundations of Information Technology " IT abilities, learning, and excellencies that can profit you while you are in school . Be that as it may, likewise establish the framework for proceeding, deep rooted improvement of your relationship to IT .
