Using Information Technologyby Brian K Williams
Synopses & Reviews
The Williams, Using Information Technology, 8th edition utilizes a practical, applied approach to technology. This text is user-focused and has been highly updated including topics, pictures and examples. The Williams text contains less theory and more application to engage students who might be more familiar with technology. Continually published and updated for over 15 years, Using Information Technology was the first text to foresee and define the impact of digital convergencethe fusion of computers and communications. It was also the first text to acknowledge the new priorities imposed by the Internet and World Wide Web and bring discussion of them from late in the course to the beginning. Today, it is directed toward the “Always On” generation that is at ease with digital technologycomfortable with iPhones, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and the blogospherebut not always savvy about its processes, possibilities, and liabilities. This 8th edition continues to address the two most significant challenges that instructors face in teaching this course: • Trying to make the course interesting and challenging, and • Trying to teach to students with a variety of computer backgrounds. In addition, this text correlates with Simnet Online for full integration of resources within the Computing Concepts course.
Using Information Technology, 7e covers the fundamental computing concepts that are part of the digital age, including software, hardware, data, people, and procedures along with expanded coverage on Security and ethics. The text centers on educating today's technology consumer, using themes of ethics, the Internet, and communications to demonstrate how the changing world of technology influences our lives and the decisions we make.
