One State's Response to the Technology Literacy Agenda.
Murray, Joy
This paper describes a range of programs (paper based, CD-ROM and online) developed by the New South Wales Department of Education and Training to address the unfolding technology literacy agenda. To illuminate the approach taken towards emerging literacies, the paper develops a metaphor around travel and the emergence of the horseless carriage. The paper also describes the Technology in Learning and Teaching (TILT) program which addresses the "teachers first" principle and provides a starting point and context for subsequent program development. The paper concludes with a millennium perspective of literacy and technology briefly looking back over the past millennium and forward towards the next. It concludes with the need to provide students with access to life's options which can only be gained through full participation in whatever are the literacies of the time. (Author/RS)
