Abstract

The purpose of this project is to provide information technology inservice workshops for the teachers of the Cooper B. Hatch Middle School in Camden, New Jersey.

These workshops were developed in response to an ever present need to educate the teaching staff of the Cooper B. Hatch Middle School, regarding the use of the information technology found in the library. The lack of information technology skills was observed by the media specialist through working in the library with the teaching staff and their students over the course of the last school year. The media specialist will work with the teaching staff through inservice workshops, which will be developed by the media specialist. The information presented to the teaching staff during the inservices will then be passed on to the students by their teachers. It will be the duty of every member of the teaching staff to assist the media specialist in teaching their students how to properly use the new types of information technology found in the school library. The ultimate goal of these workshops is for the teaching staff to acquire information technology skills through participating in five two hour after-school inservice workshops.
