Computer Competencies for All Educators in North Carolina Public Schools. Revised.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
The task force on computer education, convened by the Department of Public Instruction in North Carolina, developed a flexible model to assist schools in coping with inservice for existing and prospective personnel and for higher education to provide training for teachers and other school personnel in computer education. Actions subsequent to the adoption of this model in 1985 have established a certification for supervisors of computer education and introduced an endorsement for computer education teachers. The two basic levels and two certifications are: (1) Level I--Computer Competencies for All Educators (a minimum exposure to the uses of microcomputers in a K-12 school setting); (2) Level II--Computer Competencies and Utilization in Content Areas--these consist of core competencies with a few special skills for each content area and include arts education (K-12), communication skills (6-12); computer education skills (K-12); exceptional children education (K-12); healthful living education (K-12); library media skills (K-12); mathematics education (6-12); science education (6-12); second language education (6-12); social studies education (6-12); and vocational education (6-12); (3) Special Endorsement in Computer Education--endorsement for teachers teaching courses coded as Computer Education or serving as computer resource teachers; and (4) Instructional Technology Specialist Computer Certification--supervisory, graduate certification. Guidelines for teacher education programs for the instructional technology specialist certification are also detailed. (ALF)
