This information processing curriculum was developed to provide business education instructors in Illinois with a useful guide for relating important new technological advances to the vocational classroom. The competency-based learning activity guides are written to be used with computer hardware and software available at the secondary and postsecondary levels. The curriculum consists of validated tasks prepared by teachers for teachers. It contains units in spreadsheets, records management (electronic and manual), database management systems, business graphics, telecommunications, and integrated software. Each section is divided into tasks. After the learner outcome is identified, information sheets, activity sheets, and evaluations are provided. Appendixes include (1) an analysis of the science, mathematics, communications, and work ethic concepts used in information processing and (2) a crosswalk relating work duties and tasks (delineated by the state board of education) with the learner outcomes presented in the various sections of the information processing guide.
