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.
