For example,when bees discover a source of nectar ,they reveal its location to the other bees on returning to the hive.They communicate the distance by means of a dance,the direction by the angle of the axis of the dance and the amount of nectar by the vigorousness of the dance. COMMUNICATION SATELLITES Now a days communication satellites are launched into the space.Modern communication satellites receive,amplify and re-transmit information back to earth providing television, tele-fax,telephone,radio links around the world.It is through communication satellites that sports and other events can be shown simultaneously as they happen in any part of the world. DATA COMMUNICATIONCOMPUTERS Data communication is a revolution in communications.Modern computers are based on the concept of binary digits,known as bits,that can only take values of 0 & 1.With all of the data stored and manipulated within a computer being held in the form of bits,any data transfer between computers also involves sending bits from one place to another.A stream of digits sent from one computer has to be reassembled into meaningful information. Computers in the Classroom Since their arrival on the market in the late 1970s, desktop computer systems have revolutionized business. Computers can also aid the research and compiling aspects of school projects, and many teachers also incorporate the machines into the learning process. A primary advantage of computers is the amount of information they offer via networking to a wide range of databases. The graphics these students are studying represent only one of the many options and capabilities offered by today’s educational software.
