Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


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 used creatively to represent 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 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. And in this Fourth Edition are new projects covering essential job skills.
