multimedia through hands on experience with CD-ROM software, the Internet,
videodisc players and other media. Educators will learn how to integrate
multimedia into all areas of their curriculum, including lesson plans,
inquiry-based learning, and student presentations. Those who attend the
course will also receive materials from the Newton's Apple Multimedia

The course provides educators with the opportunity to work with a wide
variety of technologies and see how they can be incorporated into
classroom activities. Educators will have the opportunity to explore the
