Abstract

As the number and complexity of required technology-related competencies grow, basic teacher education media courses need to develop alternatives to instructor-led lecture-based formats in order to maintain essential components of course content while incorporating new content in expanding technologies. Creating technology-mediated instructional environments that are used as out-of-class assignments is one way to deal with this issue. This paper presents the process of transforming lesson content from lecture-based format to instructional content delivered through the World Wide Web. It discusses visual literacy concepts and details the steps taken to make the Web site instructional and interactive rather than merely informational. Highlights include: (1) defining visual literacy content; (2) design of computer mediated instruction; (3) a research review; (4) student feedback on the Web site; (5) interactive instruction; (6) designing the instruction, including two sample learning activities; and (7) the visual literacy instructional package. Several sample screens are included. (Contains 19 references.) (Author/AEF)
