What is included with this book?
This book covers all of the traditional topics taught in a Computer Concepts, Digital Literacy, or Computer Literacy course.
Visualizing Technology is unlike any textbook you’ve seen before. Instead of pages full of long paragraphs, you’ll find a highly visual, magazine-style layout with images creatively representing concepts, making them easy to remember. Chapters are organized as articles with catchy headlines; all the details are included, but in bite-size chunks of text that are written for the way students think. You’ll also find coverage of ethics, green computing, and careers in every chapter. The content is modular, so you can use this book however you teach your course.
In the Fifth Edition is an all-new design that presents the content in a more linear, engaging way—just like students would see on their favorite websites. Every chapter now also has both a Digital Literacy project and an Essential Job Skills project to help students gain the practical skills they need for today’s work environment.
