Teachers will be provided with lessons and classroom activities to help develop these concepts. Register for MAT 314.82.

You will leave this class prepared with practical ideas that you will be able to immediately apply in your classroom. Among the topics this course will explore are how digital cameras work, basic photo editing techniques using Adobe Photo9shop, and how to integrate the use of digital images into the curriculum. Through a variety of hands-on activities, you will develop the skills needed to effectively begin using digital images in your classroom. You should have basic computer skills (word processing, e-mail, basic Internet skills). Register for INT 850.17 in the online catalog.
