Technology in Action
Alan Evans • Kendall Martin • Mary Anne Poatsy
A Computer Concepts Text Focused on the Way You Experience Technology Today!
If you are like most students today, you already feel at home in the digital environment and you are intrigued by the exciting things technology can do for you.
Technology in Action takes a unique approach and teaches technology the way you actually experience it in real life. Topics are covered using a spiraling approach between chapters in order to mirror the typical learning experience. The question-and-answer presentation of the material throughout the text will hold your attention by engaging you in a constant dialogue with the authors. And the unique companion media enable you to interact with technology as you are learning the key concepts.
Would you rather just read about technology, or interact with it?
Technology is exciting, and your course material should be, too. With Technology in Action, you are not expected to learn by simply reading a textbook; instead, we invite you to explore the interactive multimedia tools that accompany your textbook.
What will you find on your Student CD or in your myitlab course?
