Download Abenteuer Informatik: IT zum Anfassen für alle von 9 bis 99 by Jens Gallenbacher PDF

By Jens Gallenbacher

Informatik ist der Schlüssel, um unsere zunehmend digitalisierte Welt zu verstehen! In diesem Buch lesen Sie nicht nur, wie Navis den günstigsten Weg bestimmen, wie so viele Bilder auf eine kleine Speicherkarte passen oder welche Dinge ein desktop eben nicht ausrechnen kann. Mit Papier und Bleistift und den Bastelvorlagen können Sie die Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen selbst buchstäblich begreifen. Ein laptop ist dafür nicht nötig!
Das Buch ist für alle da, die schon immer mal hinter die Kulissen der Wissenschaft Informatik schauen wollten: Vom Schüler zum Lehrer, vom Studenten zum Professor, vom interessierten Laien zum IT-Experten, der zwar genau weiß, wie er bestimmte Dinge zu tun hat, aber vielleicht nicht, warum sie so funktionieren oder wie er den Kern seiner tägliche Arbeit seiner Familie verständlich machen kann.
Die four. Auflage enthält nicht nur zusätzliche Kapitel, sondern stellt eine komplette Überarbeitung dar, die Jens Gallenbacher auf foundation unzähliger Erfahrungen und Rückmeldungen vorgenommen hat. Praktisch jedes Kapitel wurde ergänzt, die Bastelbögen neu gestaltet. In der neuen Auflage enthalten nun alle Kapitel durchgehend Hands-on-Anteile, damit Sie unmittelbar selbst Erfahrungen mit der Informatik sammeln können – ganz ohne Computer.
Stimmen zu vorhergehenden Auflagen:
„Wer mit einem Informatikstudium liebäugelt, erhält einen Vorgeschmack auf das, was once ihn erwartet - alle anderen können das Buch einfach zum Vergnügen lesen.“ c't – Magazin  für Computertechnik
„Lassen Sie sich additionally ein auf das ‚Abenteuer Informatik’! Ich bin sicher, dass Sie Spaß daran haben“ LOG IN – Informatische Bildung und machine in der Schule
„Auch wenn es unglaublich klingt: Abenteuer Informatik ist ein Buch über wichtige Prinzipien der modernen informationsverarbeitenden Alltagswelt, das guy beim Lesen nicht mehr aus der Hand legen will.“ BIOspektrum
„Mit bester Empfehlung!" PM – Praxis der Mathematik
„Bits zum Begreifen" Bild der Wissenschaft
Prof. Dr. Jens Gallenbacher beschäftigt sich an der Technischen Universität Darmstadt sowie an der Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz schon sehr lange mit der Frage, wie guy die Fachwissenschaft Informatik lebendig und mit einem hohen Allgemeinbildungsgrad vermittelt. Um zu zeigen, dass Informatik mehr mit menschlicher Kreativität und konsequentem Denken zu tun hat als mit Computern, verzichtet er dabei weitgehend auf den Einsatz der Geräte. Seine Konzepte werden vom Kindergarten bis zur universitären Grundlagenausbildung eingesetzt. Fachdidaktik ist in der Lehrerausbildung sein Kernthema.
