Abstract

In this chapter, the contributor offers three tools for creating technology-based instructional materials. Microsoft Word is the word processor of choice for creating text-based materials. Microsoft’s Power Point is recommended for visual-based classroom presentations. And, Netscape Composer provides an environment for creating Web-based materials. Chapter 11 offers a primer for creating technology-based instructional materials. Certainly, there is no attempt to provide a level of detail necessary to produce materials that would compete with commercial packages. Rather, consider the technology tools introduced in Chapter 2, combine them with the academic content offered in Chapters 3 through 9, take into account the implications of special needs students addressed in Chapter 10, and create individualized instructional materials using the skills offered. If additional features are desired, readers are encouraged to locate a copy of Teaching Digitally: A Guide for Integrating Technology into the Classroom, by Lawrence A. Tomei, published by Christopher Gordon Publishers, Inc.
