(Technology Educators Association Inc, TEA Magazine, Term 4, 2016. Review by Katrina Conaghan)

When I look at this book I can see it has been written with students and teachers in mind. The start of every chapter informs the teacher of the knowledge and skills covered in the chaper, uses across the curriculum, alignment with the Australian Curriculum, capabilities covered such as numeracy and critical thinking and digital technologies. All that wonderful information for the front of your program - done. It does cover the basics really well, the introductory theory is succinct and up to date. The layout of the text is student friendly. I appreciate that there is more than one software choice to accomplish the tasks in the text. I really appreciate that the support files include exercise files so I don’t have to go away and create them and students get started straight away on the IT excercises. The interactive text includes videos, interactive quizzes and drag and drop. What I like most about the book is its simplicity. It is covering the basics across a wide range of software types suchs as word, movie making, multimedia, and programming. When students arrive from primary school they often have such a wide range of skills, with significant gaps. This book has you covered.
