Brief Summary

This short book is for undergraduate and graduate college and university students, and for others thinking about enrolling in higher education courses. It is designed to help you get an education that prepares you for life in our rapidly changing Information Age. The information and ideas presented will help you to gain a competitive advantage over your fellow students and others who lack appropriate insights into how Information and Communication Technology is changing our world.

This book is a companion to A Faculty Member’s Guide to Computers in Higher Education, which is available free on the Website The two books share many of the same ideas, but these ideas are presented from two quite different points of view.
