19 Conclusion

In sections 15–18, we examined the components and processes of an ICT system that is used for an everyday activity: shopping. We started by looking at a system map of the ‘checkout system’ before exploring the processes involved at the checkout. We considered some examples of networks and discussed the processes involved in a networked supermarket ICT system. Finally, we looked briefly at another way in which ICT systems can be used for shopping: e-commerce.

Google Scholar Can be a Starting Point for Research
A colleague once said that students can't use Google for research, because they don't know how to search properly. She was primarily concerned that inexperienced researchers do not know how to identify legitimate online resources.
