USING FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING INFORMATION, 9E is a non-debit/credit text known for its strong decision-making focus and its incorporation of flagship companies for increased relevance. This text provides the appropriate blend of academic rigor with step-by-step learning and decision-making models that reach today's students and equip them with the skills they need to be effective decision makers and future business leaders. Instead of an abstract approach to accounting, USING FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING INFORMATION takes students through recognizable focus companies and their specific financial data and business strategies, imparting students with real-life experience and a model to hone the skills necessary to making important decisions. This edition features three key models that provide students with a more structured approach to understanding financial data and explains how it is used to make sound business decisions. The Transaction Analysis Model helps students see the effects an economic event has on the accounting equation and financial statements, the Financial Decision Framework focuses on ratio analysis and financial decisions, and the Ethical Decision Model helps students use ethical judgment when applying accounting principles. USING FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING INFORMATION, 9E will help students learn and understand core accounting rules. It also will give them a framework through which they can apply their knowledge to make effective business decisions.

In spring 2000, representatives from the U.S. Department of Education (DOEd) and senior staff at the National Research Council (NRC) recognized a common frustration: that the potential of information technology to transform K-12 education remains unrealized. In fall 2000 the U.S. DOEd formally requested that the National Academies undertake an interdisciplinary project called Improving Learning with Information Technology (ILIT). The project was launched with a symposium on January 24-25, 2001. This report summarizes the proceedings of the symposium and is intended for people interested in considering better strategies for using information technology in the educational arena. While it offers insights from the presenters on both the challenges to and the opportunities for forging a better dialogue among learning scientists, technologists, and educators, it does not contain conclusions or recommendations. Rather, it highlights issues to consider, constituents to engage, and strategies to employ in the effort to build a coalition to harness the power of information technologies for the improvement of American education. Every effort has been made to convey the speakers' content and viewpoints accurately. Recognizing the speculative nature of many of the speaker contributions, most attributions identify a speaker by area of expertise rather than by name. The report reflects the proceedings of the workshop and is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all the issues involved in the project to improve learning with information technology.
