A Prospectus for the Development of a Career-Development and Technology Program for Elementary School Children.
Todd, Ronald D.; Todd, Karen Pritchett
The Career Development and Technology Program will help elementary school children examine various occupations, the world of work, technology, and their own interest and abilities in relation to possible career directions. Specifically it will: (1) provide learning activities that engage the learner in experiences suited to his interests, (2) interrelate areas through jobs and activities that cross disciplines, (3) help pupils develop an understanding of self, technology, and the world of work, and (4) provide a foundation for later study of technology and continued career exploration. The materials will be packaged so that they can be used in spontaneous as well as planned activities. A Technology Resource Kit contains a variety of games, simulation and reading materials, role playing props, tools, and construction materials. It is anticipated that the student will develop in the following way: (1) The elementary child will look at the basic elements of "man and things," (2) The middle grades students will gain an understanding of self and the dimension of "products and services," and (3) The high school student will gain information necessary to develop a career plan.
