Catherine Fuster from Lakes Region Community College will teach us how she has successfully implemented Office Pro in a Traditional Classroom.
Using the Videos in a Traditional Classroom
- Use video segments to augment your lectures, skipping to specific portions of video.
- Use the PowerPoint slides to assist with lecture content and activity files to assist with live demonstrations during the lecture.
- Use the lecture focus questions provided in the Lesson Plans or Section Introductions to jumpstart class discussions.
- Have students watch a video lesson and then assign them to team-teach a class so they thoroughly understand the topic.
- Focus on the “why” and real-world application of the content and skills presented in the video, and have students watch the videos prior to class
- Use the video content to bring students up to speed when they miss a class.
Using the Text Lessons in a Traditional Classroom
- Text lessons can be used at home for a refresher/reminder of concepts taught in the class.
- Use text lessons to review key concepts and items not covered within the videos.
- Print or save the lessons for future reference and note taking.
Using the Office Pro Lab Simulations in a Traditional Classroom
- Use the Skills labs in class to learn the skill and how to complete each task.
- Use the Applied and Challenge labs at home to reinforce learning.
Using the Capstones in a Traditional Classroom
- Download and send the Capstone Projects at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning and assess their skill level.
- Capstones are available as Class Activities in the Teaching Aids for the following:
- These projects require student access to the live Microsoft Office applications. Because each project will be diff erent, they need to be manually graded by the instructor.
- Use the included rubric for each project
Using the Office Pro Certification Exam in a Traditional Classroom
- Use the TestOut Office Pro certification exam as a final exam.
- To prepare for the Office Pro Certication exam, use the Custom Exam resources, the Domain Exams toward the end of the product, or the Practice Exams.
