An Emerging Technology Curriculum. A Model with Task Listings.
Bangasser, Vi; And Others
This project was designed to provide a model for secondary and postsecondary educators in planning and developing a well-articulated competency-based delivery system focusing on high-technology training. The model was to be implemented in several vocational-technical programs so that secondary students would acquire the necessary competencies to enter comparable high-technology programs at the community college level. The project involved the cooperative efforts of the Jo Daviess-Carroll Area Vocational Center, the Stephenson Area Career Center, and Highland Community College, all in northwestern Illinois. Staff members from each institution cooperated in writing a transportable model of a well-articulated competency-based secondary-postsecondary high-technology curriculum adaptable in any Illinois setting. The model outlines the procedures for analyzing the components of such a program, constructing the program, coordinating the program with business and industry, implementing the program within the existing curriculum, and recording the participating students' progress through the program. The competency-based task lists developed as a part of the project, as well as more detailed information about the task listing procedures and task transcript, are included as appendixes to this report. They cover the following topics: communications, mathematics, mechanical drafting, electronics core, hydraulics-pneumatics, and computer BASIC. (KC)
