This book was just written to help a person who has very little computer knowledge. It helps you download and install virus software, helps speed up your computer, create folders, enter safe mode, fix the Blue Screen on Windows XP, tells you how to search and access your start menu using Windows 8.
Every year or so you hear the big pitch: Windows is finally going to be awesome again. The new update is big, grander and a huge overhaul. And then it comes and it's more buggy, weirder, and less functional than the version that came before! That's probably what made you consider making the switch-you're tired of the excuses and you want a computer that just works! Whether you are a new convert to Mac, still thinking about making the switch, or just want to learn more about Macs, this book will guide you through the Mac OS and help you see how making the switch really isn't the great leap that you once thought it was. This book will show you the basics and show you how to do the common day tasks you know on Windows (like right clicking). It will also show you how to get your Mac in sync with your iPad or iPhone, and how to do everyday tasks like change background, find files, and performance tweaks to keep your Mac running like new.
A road map for service-learning partnerships between information science and nonprofit organizations
While service-learning is a well-known educational method for integrating learning experiences with community service, it is only now beginning to emerge in computer and information sciences (CIS). Offering a truly global perspective, this book introduces for the first time an essential framework for service learning in CIS, addressing both the challenges and opportunities of this approach for all stakeholders involved-faculty, students, and community nonprofit organizations (NPOs), both domestic and abroad.
Service-Learning in the Computer and Information Sciences outlines numerous examples of successful programs from around the world, presenting practical working models for implementing joint projects between NPOs and academia. It provides faculty members with vital insight into how to coordinate projects with a community partner, arms students with real-world problem-solving skills specific to issues faced by NPOs, and gives NPOs the expertise to leverage information technology to improve the overall value of their services.
