Course Goals in Computer Education, K-12.
Allenbrand, Bob, Ed.; And Others
Designed to be used in conjunction with a school district's educational goals and focusing on what is to be learned rather than the methodology to be used, the program and course goals presented here are intended as guidelines for planning and evaluating elementary and secondary school curricula in computer education. Of four possible levels of goals, only program (general outcomes) and course (specific outcomes) goals are included, leaving the use of behavioral and/or planning objectives optional at the classroom teacher level. Two taxonomies are provided: the first describes the three types of goals in this collection--knowledge (information), process (skills and abilities), and values (attitudes and opinions); the second classifies a specific subject (computer education) into components (e.g., computer systems, hardware, software, applications). Program goals are listed for both career and computer education, and course goals are given for values and computer education, processes of inquiry and problem-solving, basic education and computer education, computer systems, calculators, computer hardware, computer software, computer applications, computer uses in business and industry, history of computer development, computer science, and computer education and careers. A concept list, an index to computer-related issues, and a subject index are attached. (MER)
