Model Learner Outcomes for Information Technology Education. Curriculum Integration Guide.
Designed to serve as a resource for school districts, this manual focuses on new applications of the information technologies that are available for use in education. The first of four chapters presents a statement of the values, philosophy, mission, and goals of the Minnesota State Board of Education. An outline of learner goals and objectives is included. The second chapter begins with an overview of the issues involved, research findings, new skills, the current state of technology in schools, and technology as a learning tool. Brief statements are then presented on individual technologies, including computer-assisted instruction, databases, word processing, multimedia and hypermedia, and other uses of microcomputers. Brief discussions of related issues such as business and industry needs, access to information, and school restructuring conclude this chapter. A model of learner outcomes related to information technology is listed in the third chapter, with an emphasis on technological literacy. The final chapter discusses the integration of technology into the educational process, including modifications and extensions for special populations and guidelines for developing an action plan.
