We will examine the pedagogical applications of Microsoft Office and other similar programs in order to understand their proper use in the classroom. These applications include dynamic content, cognitive enhancement, external learning, and integration of materials. Students of the workshop will leave with an understanding of the best practices and pedagogy when using this type of software in the classroom.
We will also discuss the basic techniques for creating sophisticated moving animations within PowerPoint, using just-in-time notes in Word, making real-time calculations in Excel and putting it all together with OneNote. Posting files to the cloud through Windows Live or Google Docs will also be demonstrated.
