Description

Make use of your technlogy skills in a classroom environment - (30+ Hours, On-line)

The Integrating Technology in the Classroom Library of online courses has been developed to help educators incorporate the Internet and computers into the learning environment. These courses offer training lessons on what integrating technology in the classroom means and explores how technology can be integrated behind the scenes, such as in lesson planning, as well as within the classroom. With the correct tools, teachers can create reusable lesson plans, interactive presentations, handouts, tests, and keep track of student information, scores, homework, or class participation; and train the students on how to use technology as well.

In addition to the lessons, the course also includes a quiz that reviews the material and provides reinforcement, a printable workbook that contains real-life examples and exercises, and a survey that allows the learner to rate the effectiveness of the course.

This Courseware was developed for educators by educators from around the world, accounting for over 150 years of experience in teaching, technology, and instructional design. Course objectives were created based on the need to provide teachers, students, and administrators the resources and tools necessary for meeting ISTE NETS, NCLB requirements, and federal and state technology standards.
