This book covers all of the traditional topics taught in a Computer Concepts, Digital Literacy, or Computer Literacy course.

Visualizing Technology is a highly visual, engaging computer concepts textbook. Unlike other textbooks, Visualizing Technology does not include pages full of long paragraphs. Instead, important topics are presented in the way students are hardwired to think--with smaller sections of text, creative use of images for easier understanding, and chapters that are organized as articles with catchy headlines.

The sixth edition continues to provide a hands-on approach to learning computer concepts in which students learn a little and then apply what they are learning in a project or simulation, or watch a Viz Clip video to dive deeper into the subject matter. Each chapter has two How-To projects focused on Digital Literacy and Essential Job Skills so that students are gaining the skills needed for professional and personal success. Additionally, students learn about the important topics of ethics, green computing, and careers in every chapter.

As technology continually evolves, so does the content. In this new edition, all of the content has been reviewed and updated to cover the latest technology, including Windows 10, masOS Sierra, and more coverage of troubleshooting and security. The Pearson eText 2.0 adds a new level of accessibility and interactivity, and new infographics provide a truly visual picture of key topics.
