FEAMS Begins Second Year
The second year of the Mobile Instructional Computer Classroom For Elementary
And Middle Schools (MICC FEAMS), sponsored
by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education began on September 26,
1995. Twenty-one teachers from Allendale and Barnwell Counties enrolled in the
course entitled Microcomputers in Instruction.
The course was held in the old classroom building at USC Salkehatchie. During
the course, the teachers learned to use an integrated package which includes
word processor, data base, spreadsheet, drawing, painting, and communications
portions. The activities centered around creating documents that are useful
in a typical classroom. The teachers also learned to use a hypermedia authoring
program which will enable teachers to create an electronic lesson that could
be shared with their students. Finally, teachers had the opportunity to review
and evaluate a number of educational software packages in mathematics and science.
Another component of the project works directly with elementary
and middle school students. With this component, portable computers
are taken to the classrooms of teachers who participated in the course. The student
component began on November 8, 1995 and will continue through May, 1996.
A total of 10 visits will be made to each classroom during the academic year.
During the visits, students will engage in a series of mathematics and science
activities using computer technology.
