Appropriate for all beginning-level courses in personal computing. Practical Computing has been crafted to address the unique challenges novices face in mastering PCs. It combines user-friendly design, creative multimedia tools, and a focus on useful skills students can apply immediately, either at home or in the workplace. Lynn Hogan helps you ease students into computing, building their confidence as they learn about hardware, software, and the Internet. The book is organized to reflect the way new users typically explore their personal computers. Hogan first explains what computers do and how they function. She introduces the concept of software; then explains what Microsoft Windows does and how to work with it. Because many new users are frustrated by lost or missing files, Hogan carefully addresses managing files and folders. Next, students begin exploring the Internet and email-with coverage of skills, concepts, and ethical issues. The book contains a full section on creating documents, spreadsheets, simple databases, graphics, and presentations with Microsoft Office.Throughout, Hogan draws upon her extensive experience teaching beginners, as well as the input of many other computer literacy instructors. Instructors have access to a comprehensive CD-ROM containing Instructors Manuals in Word and PDF formats; solutions to all questions and exercises; multiple, customizable PowerPoint slide presentations; Computer Concepts animations; TechTV videos, and all image files displayed in the text.
