Computer Literacy 10. Curriculum Guide=Informatique 10. Guide Pedagogique.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
This curriculum guide provides information in both English and French for teaching the course, Computer Literacy 10, in the high schools of the Canadian province of Alberta. A basic introductory course developed in response to the need to acquaint high school students with a general understanding of computers and their use, Computer Literacy 10 has been designed in conjunction with computer literacy programs introduced at both the elementary and junior high levels. This guide covers four major areas: (1) The Computer Literacy Program (rationale and philosophy, major goals, core-elective format, core topics, provisions for differences in student background, course implementation, hardware and software requirements, methodology, and learning resources); (2) Program of Studies (the core component); (3) Elective Component (notes concerning the elective and suggested elective topics); and (4) Classroom Instructional Notes (evaluation, provisions for the gifted and talented, and provisions for the learning disabled and the handicapped). The first appendix in the English version provides a table showing the correlation of resources to core topics and the second is an annotated listing of additional resources and support materials. Appendices to the French version include descriptions of three computer programs and an annotated listing of three reference sources in French. (RP)
