This is a fundamental "computer literacy" course geared toward teachers using Macintosh computers in the classroom. It is designed to promote a working knowledge and an understanding of these systems and the included software to support their use in an educational environment. This will be a project-based course where the participants will learn hands-on skills that can be of immediate benefit in everyday teaching. The end result of the course will be the creation by the participants of curriculum-specific technologized learning units that can be utilized in their classrooms. The course is taught in a 'hybrid environment' meaning that alternating class sessions will be held in the classroom, online using an eLearning environment, and using computers at a time of their choosing. Topics include: Basic Macintosh operation and navigation of the OS X (Tiger) operating system. The major components and hardware interfaces of the computer; MS Office application software; iLife application software; network communications and the Internet; the basics of web design; classroom use of video conferencing, streaming video streaming and future trends in instructional technology.
