This curriculum guide provides the basic curriculum components required to develop lesson plans that address the learning outcomes for the area of integrated computing. It is not a complete, self-contained curriculum. Instead, the guide provides the teacher with a number of informational items related to the learning outcomes and allows him/her the flexibility to design instructional activities, select resources, and deliver instruction most appropriate for the learner and learning environment. Information for the teacher includes suggestions for development of instructional activities, instruction, and evaluation of learner performance. This area of study is divided into 15 learning outcomes. Each learning outcome is divided into one to three associated tasks. For each task these types of information are provided: performance standard; required tools, resources, equipment, and situations; performance steps (where applicable); and enabling objectives. Representative topics upon which learning outcomes focus include keyboarding techniques on the computer keyboard, computer literacy, the concept of integrated software, use of specialized and integrated software, word processing, proofreading, spreadsheets, file and database management, telecommunications and electronic mail, accounting applications, and database creation.
