"This concise and practical text describes major educational computer applications and provides methods for using computer tools effectively in the teaching/learning process. The author focuses on using word processors, databases, spreadsheets, the Internet, and hypermedia software-tools that all classrooms with computers have. The text is independent of hardware and equally applicable to Macs or PCs, and speaks to methods that apply across grade levels and disciplines. The text has been extensively class tested and written from the perspective of what will work for teachers. Many helpful models, lesson plans, skill-building tips and activities are included to allow students to pick up this book and put it to use in the classroom right away."--BOOK JACKET.
