Putting the Sizzle Back into Computer Literacy.
Gazik, Carol J.
In a world of continuous change directly related to information technology, it is incumbent on faculty in higher education to share tools and ideas that foster effective teaching and learning experiences for students. This paper discusses four areas which should be addressed when teaching computer literacy: (1) establish computer literacy requirements and be willing to re-evaluate them yearly; (2) determine the mix of computer skills in each introductory computer class; (3) work toward building community in each class; and (4) have a long list of practical activities to enhance class interest. Suggestions for hardware, software and other activities are provided. (AEF)
