This latest edition of the well-respected Computers and Technology in a Changing Society is now based on the Understanding Computers textbook.

This text also includes additional society-oriented projects, such as a "Balancing Act" and "Ethics in Action" activities.

Synopsis:

UNDERSTANDING COMPUTERS IN A CHANGING SOCIETY analyzes how technology affects the world in which we live while still giving students a solid introduction to computer concepts. The combination of this text and the online companion make computer concepts applicable to career-focused students.
