The Computer/Technology Skills Standard Course of Study describes the progressive development of knowledge and skills in six strands: (1) Societal and Ethical Issues; (2) Database; (3) Spreadsheet Keyboard; (4) Utilization/Word Processing/Desktop Publishing; (5) Multimedia/Presentation, and (6) Telecommunications/Internet. The revision process began in August 2002. North Carolina educators, through an online discussion forum, survey, focus groups, and teleconference, evaluated the Computer/Technology Skills Standard Course of Study. The Computer/Technology Skills Core Revision Committee reviewed the input and recommended that revisions be made. At its October 2002 meeting, the State Board of Education approved a revision of the telecommunications strand, with particular emphasis on personal safety and responsible and ethical behavior in the use of technology resources and information. All suggestions were discussed, reviewed, and incorporated into draft documents by the Core Revision Committee. The current revision process involved on some level the entire education community, and its end product is a North Carolina curriculum of which the state can be justifiably proud. Includes a glossary of terms.
