Telecourse Covers Internet Basics

The Internet Training Series, a satellite broadcast offered by the Ingham Intermediate School District (IISD) in Mason, Mich., will introduce educators to the use of the Internet for K-12 classroom application.

Using a "train the trainers" format, participants acquire information they can easily share with teachers. The first four programs, beginning in March, will be broadcast through the Satellite Education Resource Consortium (SERC), and the last two will be provided by Michigan State University.

Participants will learn how to create classroom projects, conduct and manage classroom research, and create lessons to foster information processing by students. They interact with their trainers via e-mail, fax or telephone. Continuing Education credits are available.

The course was produced with funding provided in part by the Michigan Information Technology Network and in collaboration with MAISA, REMCAM and the South Central Michigan Consortium.
