Course Title: Advanced Integration of Internet Resources for Classroom Use (2 grad. credits)

Instructor: Gary Witcher

Course Description: In this computer workshop students will use advanced web page development tools (frames, Java, sound, video) to construct their own web pages. They will then place these pages on the web using free hosting sites.

Rationale: As internet resources become more sophisticated they present unique challenges for the classroom teacher. On one hand, new technology is constantly expanding the educational potential of internet use. However, increased knowledge and skills are required to use these tools to their maximum potential. Actually using advanced technology to construct web pages provides teachers with first-hand knowledge of these tools.

Course Objectives: By the end of the workshop participants will
