Intended to guide teachers, librarians, and administrators in meeting the educational technology needs of students at all grade levels and subject areas, this curriculum focuses on how computers, telecommunications, automated libraries, television, and satellite links, impact schools. The curriculum addresses both the teaching of technology and the use of technology to teach. The curriculum is set up so that grades K-4 receive foundational information, grades 5-8 focus on skill-building, and grades 9-12 refine knowledge and skills. Expected outcomes for K-4 include the operation of a computer, scanner, CD-ROM drive, video camera, editing machine, printer, modem, and microphone; the ability to recognize computer terminology; and the ability to use a variety of software. Expected outcomes for grades 5-8 include the ability to use equipment at a more advanced level; ability to use keyboarding, database, word processing, spreadsheet, and graphics programs independently; and the ability to recognize technology as a force of change in the world and to make ethical decisions about its use. Expected outcomes for grades 9-12 include the ability to use more sophisticated equipment; the ability to select appropriate technologies and use them independently; the ability to assess the effects of technology on society and ethical implications; and the ability to recognize the impact of technology in the workplace and for life-long learning.
