North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
North Carolina has maintained a "Standard Course of Study" since the 1890s; every five to seven years since that time, it has been revised to reflect the needs of North Carolina students. The Standard Course of Study includes curriculum that should be made available to every child in the state's public schools. The "K-12 Computer/Technology Skills Standard Course of Study" identifies the essential knowledge and skills that all students need to be active, lifelong learners in a technology intensive environment. The three competency goals defined include: (1) The learner will understand important issues of a technology-based society and will exhibit ethical behavior in the use of computer and other technologies; (2) The learner will demonstrate knowledge and skills in the use of computer and other technologies; and (3) The learner will use a variety of technologies to access, analyze, interpret, synthesize, apply, and communicate information. Following an introduction and overview, activities and objectives are defined for these goals separately for grades K-8, and then collectively for grades 9-12 in different subject areas. Grade Level Strand Guides are provided individually for grades K-8 and collectively for grades 9-12. Contains a glossary of terms. (AEF)
