The Cisco Networking Academy Program provides in-depth and meaningful networking content, which is being used by regional and local academies to teach students around the world by utilizing the curriculum to integrate networking instruction into the classroom. The focus of the Cisco Networking Academy Program is placed on the integration of a Web-based network curriculum into the learning environment. This element is addressed through intensive staff development for teachers and innovative classroom materials and approaches to instruction, which are provided by Cisco. The participating educators are provided with resources, the means of remote access to online support, and the knowledge base for the effective classroom integration of the Cisco Systems Networking Academy curriculum into the classroom learning environment. As a result, the Cisco Networking Academy Program provides the means for dynamic exchange of information by providinga suite of services that redefine the way instructional resources are disseminated, resulting in a many-to-many interactive and collaborative network of teachers and students functioning to meet diverse educational needs.
What makes the Cisco Networking Academy Program curriculum exciting to educators and students is the fact that the courseware is interactive. Because of the growing use of interactive technologies, the curriculum is an exciting new way to convey instruction with new interactive technologies that allow instructors and trainers to mix a number of media, including audio, video, text, numerical data, and graphics. Consequently, students can select different media from the computer screen and custom design their instructional content to meet their instructional needs, and educators have the option of either designing their own environment for assessment or selecting from the applicable assessments.
Finally, by developing a curriculum that recognizes the changing classroom and workforce demographics, the globalization of the economy, changing workforce knowledge and skill requirements, and the role of technology in education, the Cisco Networking Academy Program supports national educational goals for K- 12 education. As support for the Cisco Network Academy Program, Cisco Press has published this book, Cisco Networking Academy Program: Engineering Journal and Workbook, Volume I, as a further complement to the curriculum used in the Cisco Networking Academy Program.
This tool is designed to further train you beyond the online training materials that you have already used in this program, along with the topics pertaining to the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) exam. The book closely follows the style and format that Cisco has incorporated into the curriculum. In addition, the book follows the two-semester curriculum model that has already been developed for the Cisco Systems Networking Academy. The Engineering Journal and Workbook will provide you with additional exercises and activities that will help to reinforce your learning We have also included writing opportunities that will help you learn to establish and keep an engineering journal. We recommend that you keep a technical or "engineering" journal. Typically, a journal is a paper-bound composition book in which pages are not added or subtracted, but dated. The types of journal entries most applicable for Networking Academy students include daily reflections, troubleshooting details, lab procedures and observations, equipment logs, hardware and software notes, and router configurations. While the journal becomes much more important as you do more network design and installation work, good habits can be developed by starting with a journal the first day of first semester. In this book, you will be asked to keep your journal on adaily basis.
