- Gmail and Google Apps: As little or as much as you like on: using Gmail effectively, Google Docs, Google Voice, Google Calendar, Web Picassa, and all the other great Google Apps. Who knew you could do so much with just one account. This is my favourite topic to teach!
I prefer to teach in a lab or classroom where each student has their own computer and there is a projector. A hands on approach is best when it comes to learning and refining computer skills. I have a calm, friendly personality and conduct my class with just enough order that a extracurricular class needs. My classes are interactive and entertaining. I mostly teach retired adults but I am comfortable teaching 6th-12th and adults. One of the advantages of being a young adult is being to relate youth, we like to learn and do similar things on the computer. Every lesson I give out a handout on the topics we will cover during that class. For on-going classes I offer a syllabus at the beginning of class. I encourage my students to ask questions often and give me input. I try to adjust class with the speed of the students so we're not going to fast or learning material that they already know. I like to make myself available for one on one questions for about 15-30 minutes after each class. For classes that are ongoing, I give out homework too! Adults say they're over homework but my past students will tell you that have an assignment reminds to practise their skills.
