Computers in the Classroom
- 3 Credits
The course begins by discussing the benefits and methodologies of integrating technology across the curriculum. Learning theory and social contexts, including special-needs students, gender equity, and equality of access are also addressed. Participants then select from a variety of hands-on exercises to create projects designed to model effective implementation of technology in the classroom. Knowledge of basic computer applications is assumed. Access to a computer and printer (black & white will suffice) is required to complete the course. All assignments may be completed without classroom participation. Instructor support is readily available by email or phone.
