EDCA 096 - TEACHING DIGITAL CONCEPTS: HOW TO CREATE ILLUSTRATED MANUALS FOR EFFECTIVE SOFTWARE AND COMPUTER INSTRUCTION
   
  In the 21st century, communication and expression have undergone an amazing revolution. Computer technology has changed every aspect of human productivity. In the world of communication, teaching, and learning, this revolution has been even more intense. Educators and trainers have embraced new technologies in every aspect of their productive lives. New digital tools and software programs allow a sense of creative empowerment never before known in human history. Technology is allowing human creativity and artistic vision to reach dimensions of astonishing dynamism and power. Every educator in the 21st century needs to understand how to use new technological tools in their own professional practise as well as to be able to offer competent instruction in the use of software for their clients and students.

Teaching software and computer programs effectively requires a powerful learning method and detailed instructional resources. This workshop provides hands-on skills for those wishing to produce professional learning manuals that really work. Participants will be introduced to an innovative learning and teaching model for instructional design (Just in Time Learning) and learn how to construct illustrated learning manuals and documents. Using Microsoft Word and Adobe Photoshop Elements, participants will learn how to create detailed instructional material using efficient instruction sets backed up with illustrations pulled from software programs as screenshots. All software and computer access will be provided.
