A Scope and Sequence Curriculum (K-12) for Computer Literacy.
Bitter, Gary G.
Designed to assist those responsible for designing school and school district computer literacy programs, this paper suggests a practical definition of the term "computer literacy," discusses types of support and skills computer literacy teachers should possess, and offers a scope and sequence model for teaching computer literacy from kindergarten through 12th grade. Under prerequisites for effective computer literacy education, three crucial factors of computer education and planning are identified and discussed in detail: (1) specific statements of goals and objectives; (2) district and local support of computer education; and (3) computer literacy training for teachers. The scope and sequence model categorizes topics and activities as being related either to computer awareness or computer programming and discusses each grade level separately. A chart summarizes the curriculum model, and eight references are listed. (LMM)
