  • Previous Editions 2012, 2011

Overview

EMERGE WITH COMPUTER CONCEPTS is a new and revolutionary way to teach and learn about digital literacy. It bridges the gap between conventional education and the way students want to learn by creating an environment that encourages students to do what comes naturally: surf the Web. Leveraging the latest technologies such as RSS feeds, YouTube videos, and Web links, EMERGE promotes discovery learning which allows students to explore, peruse, skip over, delve, wander, and drill into Computer Concepts and Issues.

Kenneth Baldauf, Florida State University

Ken Baldauf is the Director of the Program in Interdisciplinary Computing at Florida State University, where he is responsible for developing courses to meet the computing and technology needs across disciplines. Since joining FSU's faculty in 1998, Ken has taught Computer Fluency, Information Management, Digital Media, Web Development, and Programming courses to classes with enrollments as large as 2,500 students per semester. Ken has partnered with Course Technology on many projects over the years, which include weekly tech news podcasts called CourseCasts, and Succeeding with Technology, a technology driven and student focused computer concepts textbook. With years of experience teaching thousands of students, Ken recognized a growing disconnect between technology education and the way students want to learn. Ken partnered with Course Technology again to develop Emerge with Computers, an exciting new online framework intended to revolutionize the way students learn about and experience technology.
  • NEW: Emphasis on Critical Thinking: "Spotlight on the News" feature highlights current events and links them to concepts taught; "What Would YOU Do?" presents dilemmas that require students to think critically and integrate concepts learned; and "An Ethical Dilemma" presents scenarios that require students to consider all sides of a timely issue.
  • NEW: Office for Mac 2011: Upgraded from the Office for Mac 2008 in the previous version, parallel lessons to those for Office 2010 for PC's are offered for Macs using Office 2011.
  • NEW: Concepts Revision: Updates to all concepts pages, including YouTube videos and photos.
  • RELEVANCE: Let's face it; students don't read long, dense text. Emerge with Computer Concepts divides lessons into a series of manageable sections, helping students retain more information. Plus, current and relevant content pulls into Emerge each week, helping students relate to the material.
  • DIGITAL: Emerge helps bridge the gap between conventional education and the way students want to learn. The completely digital learning environment encourages students to do what comes naturally – get online.
  • CHOICE: Compatible with most Learning Management Systems including Blackboard, Moodle, WebCT, Angel and Desire2Learn, along with a number of versions, Emerge provides the opportunity to meet the needs of online or on-ground classes, your teaching preferences, and most importantly – your students.
