Recitations seek to parallel Monday’s lectures. However, recitations focus on skill-building through an introduction to a variety of software packages and computing devices. For example, the first lab-related recitation speaks to the history and use of the world wide web, followed by a demonstration of how to build and post a basic web page using Macromedia’s® Dreamweaver®. To capture and manipulate images for the web-based portfolio, students will use digital cameras, scanners, and Adobe’s® Photoshop®. Over the next several weeks and through a series of laboratory exercises, students will also learn to use Microsoft’s® Access to manage and analyze data. Finally, they will also experiment with ESRI’s ArcGIS™ to create maps and create spatial representations.
Class will be held for 1.5 hours, but the laboratories are reserved for an additional ½ hour if you have the desire to continue working.
