Computer literacy has become the new basic skill. Teachers need to effectively use a computer in the classroom to increase resources and enhance student skills.
The course will provide a hands-on approach that will enable candidates, whether in elementary or secondary schools, to successfully integrate computer technologies across the curriculum. It will also provide a review of the basics of hardware and software and an exploration of materials, programs, and issues related to the integration of computer technology into the curriculum. Candidates will learn how to access and use relevant Internet resources, Web sites, and the use of other available programs. They will review criteria for choosing appropriate curriculum software for their classrooms, investigate software that can be run on a variety of platforms, and explore ethical issues related to computer use in the classroom.
