Computer Technology for Teaching & Learning – Help!

This upcoming Tuesday I start teaching a college course entitled “Computer Technology for Teaching/Learning I”.

I have been given a Syllabus outlining the objectives and the person that taught it last has shared his google site with me. Both are fairly open and I could take the class many different directions. My question is, what essential technology skills do new teachers need their first year to succeed in this ever changing landscape? I’m thinking document formatting in word and making a powerpoint aren’t going to cut it anymore.

Your comments and suggestions welcome.
