Visualizing Technology covers all of the traditional topics taught in a Computer Concepts, Digital Literacy, or Computer Literacy course, but in a non-traditional way that is more appealing to visual and kinesthetic learners. With an innovative and easy to read writing style, Visualizing Technology teaches readers the basics of using a computer, from File Management to Hardware and Software and the Internet.
Visualizing Technology is unlike any textbook you’ve seen before. You won’t find pages full of long paragraphs. Instead, you’ll find a highly visual, magazine-style layout with images used creatively to represent concepts, making them easy to remember; chapters organized as articles with catchy headlines; and all the details needed but in bite-size chunks of text written the way students are hardwired to think. You’ll also find coverage of ethics, green computing, and careers in every chapter, and the content is modular, so you can use this book the way you teach your course.
