Seamless Microsoft Office instruction, practice, and assessment – coupled with computer concepts

With GO! All in One: Computer Concepts and Applications, you can teach computer concepts and applications together – the way they’re meant to be used. Engage students with jobs-related projects that teach Microsoft Office in the context of a real workplace. Put concepts into action using a jobs-focused, unit-based approach, or take an IC3-based approach to prepare students for IC3 exams. Throughout projects, Gaskin uses easy-to-follow Microsoft Procedural Syntax so students always know where to go on the ribbon; she combines this with a Teachable Moment approach that offers learners tips and instructions at the precise moment they’re needed.
