Elementary School Technology Education: A Modular Resource Package.
Pedras, Melvin J.; Jackson, Christi
The three learning modules in this package are designed to provide elementary school teachers with exploratory level learning activities that will encourage students to understand technology and become technologically literate. The package is organized around the following major content areas: (1) computer technology--in which students use microcomputers in computer assisted instructional programs; (2) problem solving--in which students learn a method for practical problem solving; and (3) communications technology--in which a history of communications and telecommunications is provided along with a discussion of telephones and communications satellites. The three modules are structured so that they can be used individually or together as a unit of technology instruction. Each module includes a title sheet, rationale and purpose, goal statement, performance objectives, list of tasks, suggested application activities, and elementary subject-matter correlation. It is suggested that modules be used as an enhancement to existing curriculum. Lists of technology resource journals and computer programs conclude the report. (26 references) (DB)
