Features and Benefits

  • Computer Concepts text aligns perfectly with SAM Concepts tasks: Book content is adapted from the SAM Computer Concepts tasks to provide SAM users a streamlined, consistent learning experience on important computer concepts topics such as hardware and software, operating systems, the World Wide Web, Safety and Security and more. Can be used as either as a 100% digital solution (as an e-book available in SAM), or as a print companion text.
  • Customizable to provide just the content you want. Choose the print chapters you want to meet your course learning outcomes. SAM lets you pick just the SAM Concepts tasks from your chosen chapters to provide your students with a streamlined learning experience.
  • Elevates Learning with hands-on activities that engage and inspire students: A wide variety of additional end-of-chapter hands-on activities (beyond what is covered in SAM), including critical thinking exercises, team projects, and ethics scenarios provide opportunities to engage students in meaningful and relevant ways to reinforce key concepts and inspire students to incorporate technology at school, on the job, and in their lives.
  • Designed to appeal to today’s students: Content is presented efficiently for today’s visual learners with streamlined text and appealing illustrations and graphics. Tips on emerging technologies (“Hot Technology Now”), Twitter-type message feed, careers (“On the Job Now”), and relevant statistics (“By the Numbers Now”) speak to the interests of today’s students to keep them engaged and motivated.
  • Award-winning author-Well-known author, popular speaker, and respected technology professor Corinne Hoisington provides contemporary expertise as well as practical insights throughout this book that go beyond the SAM content. A recipient of the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional in Computer Programming award, Ms. Hoisington applies her expertise in emerging technology to keep students engaged and inspire them to use and explore technology to help them succeed in school and in their careers.
