Developing a Curriculum Framework in Technology for Young Children.
Rodriguez, Stephen; Williams, Morgan
This chapter is part of a book that recounts the year's work at the Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) at Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi. Rather than an "elitist" laboratory school for the children of university faculty, the dual-language ECDC is a collaboration between the Corpus Christi Independent School District and the university, with an enrollment representative of Corpus Christi's population. The chapter describes a project at the ECDC to develop standards for the integration of technology into the school curriculum. The standards were synthesized from teacher concerns, examination of instructional materials, and review of national and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) state standards. The project resulted in several products, including a set of tables describing each TEKS technology strand, corresponding performance objectives or tasks for each grade level, suggested student activities from thematic units, and required software.
