This book 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.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. 

MyITLab® for Visualizing Technology is a fully integrated learning program that includes Grader projects, the Pearson eText, and all of the student and instructor resources in one place! MyITLab personalizes learning to help your students better prepare for class, quizzes, and exams—resulting in more dynamic experiences in the classroom and improved performance in the course.

Teaching and Learning Experience

This program presents a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students. It will help:

  • Personalize Learning with MyITLab: MyITLab reacts to how students are actually performing, offering data-driven guidance that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts—resulting in better performance in the course.

  • Appeal to Visual and Kinesthetic Learners: A highly visual, magazine-style layout is fresh, modern, and motivating.

  • Keep Students Motivated with Hands-on Activities: Hands-on projects, the TechTown simulated, story-based game, and a running project guide students through every chapter and pull students in as they learn the material by doing, not just by reading.

  • Keep Your Course Current with In-Chapter Elements that Cover Hot Topics: In-chapter elements like QR codes and Things You Need to Know boxes keep students current on the latest hot topics in computing.

  • Provide Support for Your Course: A wealth and variety of end-of-chapter exercises provide instructors with lots of assessment options.

  • Note: You are purchasing the standalone text. MyITLab does not come automatically packaged with the text. To purchase MyITLab with this title, please contact your Pearson representative. MyITLab is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
