Welcome to Introduction to Apple iLife ’06 in the Classroom
This course will be delivered by Leslie Carroll and Mary Marotta. We are both technology integration teachers for the Nashoba Regional School District and are very excited about teaching this course.
This course is designed to train teachers to use the applications included in Apple’s iLife ’06 suite including iPhoto, iMovie, iTunes, iDVD and GarageBand. We will provide basic instruction on how to use each of the various applications and ideas on how to incorporate them into a classroom environment, either making projects for instructional use or teaching students to create their own projects.
