Internet Training Manual for Educators.
A series of Internet workshops funded through the Research Excellence Fund of the State of Michigan and administered by the Projects for Urban and Regional Affairs at the University of Michigan-Flint was provided to all of the educators in Beecher Community School District, Flint, Michigan. Training consisted of 5 two-hour workshops during the beginning of the winter semester of the 1998-99 academic year. This manual is designed to accompany the Internet training workshops. The first workshop introduced the definition and history of the Web and provided instruction on online library and educational database searches, and the use of search engines. The second workshop covered the use of Usenet and newsgroups for information sharing and teaching. The third session presented successful examples of the use of the Web in building rich pedagogical and curricular environments. The fourth and fifth sessions prepared participants to design and produce their own Web pages. Following the completion of the training, participants will be able to: (1) navigate and do searches on the Web using a Web browser; (2) identify legal and ethical resources for determining the legality of options from on-line graphics to copyright law restrictions; (3) identify curricular areas that can be supported well with Web resources, and those that cannot; (4) identify free and commercial sites on the Internet that are available to support specific classes; (5) use the jargon of the Internet; (6) understand how Web pages are designed and the coding that is needed to create these pages; (7) participate in support groups and develop skills that can provide for local district/building needs; and (8) employ effective instructional strategies when teaching with the Web.
