Computer Applications and Technology 105.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
Designed to promote Manitoba students' familiarity with computer technology and their ability to interact with that technology, the Computer Applications and Technology 105 course is a one-credit course presented in 15 topical, non-sequential units that require 110-120 hours of instruction time. It has been developed with the assumption that each student will have hands-on computer access for at least 50% of the course time. The course consists of CORE modules, which are mandatory for all students and constitute 60% of the program time, and OPTION modules, which offer flexibility in designing a program to meet individual student needs, making up 40% of the time. The first of two main CORE units takes up 45% of the time and focuses on personal productivity tools, i.e., database management, desktop publishing, graphics, spreadsheets, telecommunication, and word processing. The second CORE unit occupies 15% of the time and covers using a computer language. (The eight OPTION units are: (1) Applications and Implications; (2) Consumerism; (3) Personal Productivity Tools; (4) Computer Evolution; (5) Keyboarding; (6) New Technologies; (7) Operating the System; and (8) Videography. Each of the CORE units may take up to 10% of the time. Information on the reproduction of materials and Canadian copyright law is also provided in both English and French. (ALF)
