Summary

This book covers all of the traditional topics taught in a Computer Concepts, Digital Literacy, or Computer Literacy course.

Always current; always innovative
Visualizing Technology
is a highly visual, engaging way to teach computer concepts. You won’t find pages full of long paragraphs, but you will find all the important topics you need to cover — written the way students are hardwired to think. Smaller sections of text, creative use of images, and magazine-style chapters with catchy headlines capture students’ interest and make it easier to learn.

The 7th Edition continues to provide a hands-on approach in which students learn a skill and then quickly apply it to a project or simulation, or watch a Viz Clip video to dive deeper. Each chapter has two How-To projects — focusing on Digital Literacy and Essential Job Skills — as well as an emphasis on ethics, green computing, and careers. And, as technology continually evolves, so does the content.

Also available packaged with MyLab IT or via Revel.

MyLab
is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. MyLab IT gives students the resources they need to be successful in their course, while also preparing them for their future careers.

Revel Visualizing Technology is an interactive digital learning environment that replaces the print textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.

Note:
You are purchasing a standalone product. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MyLab, or via Revel, ask your instructor to confirm the correct ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
