Technology Education Curriculum Standards K-12. Revised.
Delaware State Dept. of Public Instruction, Dover. Div. of Vocational Education.
These standards have been developed to provide a rationale and educational model for establishing Technology Education programs and for modifying Industrial Arts programs to reflect characteristics of technological systems. National curriculum theories and practices and Delaware's Educational Goals have provided the foundation for the development of these standards. It is recognized that although Technology Education specialists are needed at each level, all disciplines are connected to technology. Teachers, supervisors, teacher educators, and administrators are encouraged to adapt and apply these curriculum standards in Technology Education curriculum development and implementation activities in grades K-12. The introductory section includes the rationale, the mission statement, philosophy, definition of technology education, descriptions of the three levels of technology education, and curriculum standards policy and use. The curriculum standards for the elementary level cover technological awareness and technological relevance. Middle level includes introduction to technology, inventions and innovations, and technological systems. The high school standards cover bio-related technology systems, communications technology systems, and physical technology systems. (KR)
