Information and Communication Technology, Kindergarten to Grade 12: An Interim Program of Studies.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Standards Branch.
This interim program of studies highlights technology learning outcomes for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students in Alberta (Canada). It forms the basis for the provincial program of studies to be released in June 2000. It identifies not only the outcomes that are already included in current programs of study, but also anticipates the knowledge, skills and attitudes that students will need to develop as technology continues to change rapidly. First, five underlying principles are outlined, followed by a curriculum overview identifying outcomes, categories of outcomes, and timelines. The body of the document details the outcome organization for the three categories, foundational operations, knowledge and concepts; processes for productivity; and communicating, inquiring, decision making and problem solving, and then lists student achievements in four divisions. Contains a glossary of terms. (AEF)
