Overview

This self-instructional textbook is an effective, innovative, and exciting way to teach computer literacy skills to secondary level students, teachers, college educators and students, and parent and user groups. With an emphasis on the partnership system of learning, You Can Do It/Together introduces the reader to critical areas of computer technology—BASIC and LOGO programming, word processing, and computer telecommunications. This volume is unique because it expects two learners to work on one microcomputer; therefore, all activities presented within each unit provide an equal opportunity for both learners to become actively involved through interaction with the microcomputer. Basic instructions and guidelines are provided for the instructor, who can use this valuable book independently or as a supplemental activity book.
