Learner Outcomes in Information and Communication Technology ECS to Grade 12: A Framework.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Standards Branch.
This framework document is the result of an extensive review of information on technology curricula from around the globe--with a focus on the work being done by Canadian education ministries, state and foreign education ministries and school jurisdictions. It is also the result of consultations with Alberta employers, employees, parents, teachers and community members on the knowledge and skills students should be able to demonstrate when leaving high school. The document highlights technology learner outcomes for ECS to Grade 12 students. It identifies outcomes already included in current programs of study, and attempts to anticipate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students will need to develop in the future as technology continues to change. This curriculum framework provides a foundation for: (1) helping Alberta Education, school systems, and schools to identify or place the outcomes in appropriate grades and subject areas; (2) developing illustrative examples--tasks that students can complete to demonstrate their proficiency--accompanied by criteria and standards of performance; (3) producing learning resources for students and teachers--guides, suggested instructional strategies, student materials, assessment tools; and (4) planning professional development activities. This document includes a glossary of terms. (Contains 11 references.) (JAK)
