Cost: $200 - Contact Hours: 14.5
CEUs: 1 graduate credit from University of Sioux Falls

Presenter Name: Tina Miller, M.A.
Course Description:
  IntelliTools Classroom Suite 4 allows you to create and adapt individualized computer activities for any subject area. When you create your own activities, you can add your own text, graphics, videos, sounds and animations. There are also pre-made activities that use a system of "model, practice and apply" to allow increased repetition of educational objectives. Attendees will use Classroom Suite 4 as a talking word processor, math activity generator or multimedia authoring program. All functions created with this product can be accessed with a regular keyboard and mouse, IntelliKeys keyboard, or single switch. Please bring a flash drive in order to take home activities created during the workshop. In addition, we will be discussing how to access the IntelliTools Activity Exchange on the Internet. This web site contains free Classroom Suite 4 activities that others across the nation have submitted for download. Please check to make sure you are using version 4 of Classroom Suite. We will only be training version 4 in this workshop.

Course Objectives: At the end of this course, attendees will learn how to:
   1. Identify techniques for using IntelliTools Classroom Suite 4
   2. Adapt classroom curriculum using IntelliTools Classroom Suite 4
   3. Customize and create specific computer activities
   4. Incorporate graphics from external sources

Every day I find myself smiling as I walk down the hallway; I just cannot get over the fact that this is my job. The smiles and laughter that comes from the students I work with rejuvenate my commitment to them and makes my soul feel whole. The thing I enjoy most about working at Children's Care, is knowing that I am helping to make a difference in the lives of every child and family I work with, and that makes me feel like I'm leading a purpose driven life.
