Technology provides ample opportunities for teachers to be learners, as well as for the learners to become the teachers. Sometimes, the most effective technology enabled classrooms are those where the instructor is the expert in the content area, and the students are the technology experts. Oftentimes it is with a great sense of pride that a student will show a teacher how to adroitly move about in an application. Designed for both instructors and students, this book teaches an array of computer applications while simultaneously allowing the user to become proficient in technological standards. Based on Joanne Barrett's notes and shortcuts from her years as a computer specialist and computer teacher, this all-inclusive hands-on guide will assist teachers and students in grades 5 through 12 who are using computers in the classroom. Explaining concepts and complicated processes in an understandable language, this complete instructional tool covers in one volume all of the computer topics that the teacher will encounter. Topics include: * Word processing * Spreadsheets * Creating charts and graphs * Databases * Multimedia presentations * The Internet * Web page design * Programming * Viruses and copyright issues
