In this class students consider a number of computing devices to determine what types of inputs and outputs they use. Groups are assigned to a computing device and based on a teacher-provided definition of input and output, list the inputs and outputs of their device. To conclude the lesson the class examines common activities they do on a computing device and select the inputs and outputs used for that activity from the chart.
- Input - A device or component that allows information to be given to a computer
- Output - Any device or component that receives information from a computer
