Using Information Technology by Brian K. Williams
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Williams, Using Information Technology, 9th edition utilizes a practical, appliedapproach to technology. This text is user-focused and has been highly updated includingtopics, pictures and examples. The Williams text contains less theory and more applicationto engage students who might be more familiar with technology. Continually published andupdated for over 15 years, Using Information Technology was the first text to foresee anddefine the impact of digital convergence, the fusion of computers and communications. Itwas also the first text to acknowledge the new priorities imposed by the Internet and WorldWide Web and bring discussion of them from late in the course to the beginning. Today, it isdirected toward the "Always On" generation that is at ease with digital technology, comfortable withiPhones, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and the blogosphere, but not always savvyabout its processes, possibilities, and liabilities. This 9th edition continues to address the two most significant challenges thatinstructors face in teaching this course: Trying to make the course interesting and challenging, and trying to teach tostudents with a variety of computer backgrounds. This text also correlates with SimNet Online, our online training andassessment program for the MS Office Suite and also computing concepts!
