Description

For introductory courses in computer concepts, digital literacy, or computer literacy, often including instruction in Microsoft Office.

Explore, discover, and experience technology with the immersive and adaptive Technology in Action—the book that uses technology to teach technology!

Technology in Action is a learning system that pushes the envelope of what is possible in technology, and what is helpful in teaching. It is a system that fits the way students are learning today.

MyITLab® for Technology in Action is a fully integrated system that provides a seamless learning experience. All of the media assets, assessments, instructor resources, and the fully interactive Enhanced eBook can be accessed in MyITLab. For a completely digital experience, students will use the Enhanced eBook, which allows them a continuous flow of learning.  They don’t have to stop reading to go find the activities such as Helpdesks, SoundBytes, and Replay Videos—they just click on them and immediately experience the activity.  Once they work through the content and activities of a chapter, they take the chapter quiz in MyITLab and their grade is recorded in the Gradebook. In addition, there are adaptive Dynamic Study Modules, created specifically for Technology in Action, 11th Edition, that provide students with personalized review based on their strengths and weaknesses.
