Technology in the Curriculum: A Handbook for Integrating Computers and Related Learning Technologies Throughout the Curriculum.
Merrimack Education Center, Chelmsford, MA.
This handbook is designed for use in conjunction with staff training seminars designed to provide teachers and administrators with a framework and procedures for designing and implementing effective applications of technologies in the curriculum. The intended outcome of the seminars is the development of comprehensive programs including the identification of specific programmatic areas by subject; the identification of student and staff competencies; and the projection of staff training requirements and budgets needed to accomplish specific program components. Chapter one provides an introduction to the program. A conceptual framework which focuses on concepts and principles in educational technology applications is presented in chapter two. Chapter three describes the tasks and activities that need to be accomplished to design and develop appropriate applications of technology throughout the curriculum, taking into consideration both curriculum development and instructional development issues. Illustrations throughout the document demonstrate basic curriculum development components and delineate specific action steps in educational strategies, integration of microcomputers into the curriculum, and the development of a curriculum framework. Appended are a checklist of planning steps, a sample instructional unit plan, a scope and sequence matrix for the cognitive levels and instruction sequences involved in developing writing skills, and a checklist for integrating technology into the curriculum.
