Toyohashi JALT:

Using the Internet in Classes Without Computers

Date: Sunday, July 4th, 2004 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Thomas Robb, Ph.D., Professor at Kyoto Sangyo University

This presentation will introduce a number of ways that instructors can reap the benefits of the Internet without having a computer physically present in the classroom. First, we will discuss techniques for taking content material from the Internet, relevant to whatever topic you are currently teaching, and turning it into useful paper-based activities. In the second half of the presentation, we will examine ways that students can conduct Internet projects without needing to set foot in a computer room.
