Summary

The goal of the Exploring series is to move readers beyond the point and click, to understanding the why and how behind each Microsoft Office skill. The yellow page & white page approach of the series identifies the hands-on work that teaches how to use Office (yellow pages) and the concepts and theories of why one would use certain Office skills (white pages). This combination provides students with an opportunity to critically think about what they are doing while completing projects, providing a deeper understanding of the skills and applications.

 

Windows 10 is a new approach to operating systems for the more mobile world we live in. With Windows 10, apps, services, and content move across devices seamlessly, and updates will be delivered regularly. There are a variety of enhancements from Windows 10, and there are significant changes from Windows 7. Since students are likely familiar with past versions, the accelerated pace of the Exploring series gives students a deeper skillset than they had before.
