Welcome to "Introduction to Computers and the Internet." This course is designed to help inexperienced computer users get over their fear of technology and get with it "technically." We are going to teach you how to get by with computers and get on the Internet. I am your instructor, Mr. Pfeffer, and these are my two asistants, Mrs. Frank and Miss DePaul. Together, we are going to help you get through concepts you need to uccessfully navigate the web.
First, I would like everyone to get into groups and choose a computer. Once you have gotten together and chosen a place to sit, we will get down to work. We will be learning about different browsers and how they function. We will teach you how to interpret the layout of a web page and how to know where to click to move to other parts of the web site. At that point, we are going to take a short fifteen minute break.
After you all get back to class, we are going to discuss web based content. We are going to teach you how to find the content you want using sources such as Yahoo or Alta Vista. So, let's get started.
