Evolution of Media

  • 2500 BCE

    Papyrus In Egypt

    First papyrus was only used
    in Egypt, but by about 1000
    BC people all over West
    Asia began buying papyrus
    from Egypt and using it,
    since it was much more
    convenient than clay
    tablets(less breakable, and
    not as heavy!). People made
    papyrus in small sheets and
    then glued the sheets
    together to make big.
  • 1700 BCE

    Pre-Industrial Age

    people had discovered the
    following developments:
    ❑creating fire
    ❑making paper out of plants
    ❑forging weapons and tools
    with stone, bronze, copper and Iron
  • Industrial Age

    people discovered the
    ❑ using power steam,
    ❑ developing machine tools,
    ❑ establishing iron production,
    ❑ manufacturing various
    products, and
    ❑ publishing books through
    printing press.
  • Typewriter

    Any of various machines for writing characters
    similar to those made by printers’ types,
    especially a machine in which the characters are
    produced by steel types striking the paper
    through an inked ribbon with the types being
    actuated by corresponding keys on a keyboard
    and the paper being held by a platen that is
    automatically moved along with a carriage when
    a key is struck.
  • Telephone

    An instrument designed for the
    simultaneous transmission and reception of
    the human voice. The telephone is
    inexpensive, is simple to operate, and offers
    its users an immediate, personal type of
    communication that cannot be obtained
    through any other medium. As a result, it has
    become the most widely used
    telecommunications device in the world.
    Billions of telephone sets are in use around
    the world.
  • Motion pictures

    Also called film or movie, series of
    still photographs on film, projected in
    rapid succession onto a screen by
    means of light. Because of the
    optical phenomenon known as
    persistence of vision, this gives the
    illusion of actual, smooth, and
    continuous movement.
    The motion picture is a remarkably
    effective medium in conveying
    drama and especially in the
    evocation of emotion.
  • Information Age

    The era where we now live in, the Information Age, is when the Internet
    has opened more opportunities for faster, real-time communication,
    including the advent of social network.
    Technology users have enjoyed the benefits of microelectronics with
    the invention of the following:
     personal computers,
     mobile devices, and
     wearable technology.
    Moreover, digitization of voice, images, sound and data is prevalent in
    this age with the help of technology.
  • Electronic Age

    paved way for the following
    ❑ inventing the transistor
    ❑improvement of the efficiency
    of the long distance
    ❑ harnessing the power of
    transistors that led to the
    invention of:
    ❑ transistor radio
    ❑ electronic circuits
    ❑ early computers
  • Television

  • Transistor Radio

    A transistor radio is a small

    became the most popular
    electronic communication
    device in history.

    Electronic Delay Storage Automatic
    Calculator (EDSAC) was an early
    British computer. The machine,
    having been inspired by John von
    Neumann's seminal First Draft of a
    Report on the EDVAC, was
    constructed by Maurice Wilkes and
    his team at the University of
    Cambridge Mathematical Laboratory
    in England.

    The first 8-inch floppy disk had a storage capacity of
    about 80 kilobytes. By 1986, IBM introduced the 3-1/2
    inch floppy disk with 1.44 megabytes of storage space.
  • Personal Computers Apple 1

    Also known later as the Apple I, or Apple-1,
    is a desktop computer released by the
