Succeeding with Technology (Sam 2010 Compatible Products)

Buy

Most students entering college have already had years of exposure to computers and other digital technologies. Elementary and high school students use computers to write papers, create presentations, communicate with each other, conduct research, and entertain themselves. Cell phones, digital cameras, and iPods are standard equipment for teens. Students understand the basics of computers and technology, and how to use them for day-to-day activities. But today’s technological world requires much more. Succeeding with Technology teaches students what they need to know about technology and how to apply it to life situations to achieve success.

The creation of Succeeding with Technology was guided by the philosophy that for students to prosper, they must grasp underlying principles of the technologies that have an impact on our lives and understand how those principles are related to real-world activities. No one is capable of gaining true understanding by memorizing long lists of technical terms. This textbook won’t overwhelm you with descriptions of numerous inconsequential devices. Instead, Succeeding with Technology provides straightforward explanations of the principles that guide technological development, without overwhelming the reader with too much detail. An understanding of the concepts provided in this book will translate into a practical understanding of the specific devices and practices in use today and in years to come.

The authors understand that technology in and of itself is not interesting to most people. What most people do find interesting are the exciting ways that technology is being used to improve our day-to-day lives, our professional productivity, society, and the world. Succeeding with Technology invests as much effort in showing how technology is used as it does in explaining how technology works. Every concept is backed up with practical examples of how it is making an impact on everyday life.

We are proud of the fourth edition of this unique textbook that takes readers beyond traditional computer competence and fluency, to a deeper understanding of not only how digital technology works, but more importantly, how it can be harnessed to improve your life.
