Digital Production Course for Educators

A course on Digital Production in the Classroom will be offered for three graduate credit hours at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina this summer. This course is available for degree and non-degree seeking students.

Aimed at teachers, the course will provide participants with the skills that are needed to create digital media for use in K-12 classrooms. Emphasis will be on using technology as a means of expression and on developing activities that further the aims of student-centered classroom environments.

Course content includes digital photography and scanning, image manipulation in Photoshop, creative approaches to Power Point, video production/digital video editing, and web page design and publication.

Jeff Goodman is the instructor for this course and has worked with teachers for the last 15 years to develop creative applications of computers and other technologies for the classroom. His own classroom experience at the elementary, middle grades and high school levels includes teaching math, science, English and technology.

Dates: July 17th to July 21st
Housing will be available for interested participants.
