Cengage-Hosted Emerge with Computers V. 5.0 Printed Access Card (New Perspectives)by Kenneth Baldauf
Synopses & Reviews
EMERGE WITH COMPUTERS is a new and revolutionary way to teach and learn about digital literacy. It bridges the gap between conventional education and the way students want to learn by creating an environment that encourages students to do what comes naturally: surf the Web. Leveraging the latest technologies such as RSS feeds, YouTube videos, and Web links, EMERGE promotes discovery learning which allows students to explore, peruse, skip over, delve, wander, and drill into Computer Concepts, Issues, and Skills. EMERGE WITH COMPUTERS 5.0 is fully updated to cover Microsoft's newest version of Office - Office 2013.
