Essential standards information and technology skills and computer technology skills scos

Essential Standards: Information and Technology Skills and Computer/Technology Skills SCOS

Develop awareness and foundations of required technology standards and competencies.


Technology broadly defined

Technology (Broadly defined)

  • The study of or a collection of techniques

  • A particular technological concept

  • The body of tools and other implements produced by a given society


Technology in education

Technology in Education

Historically

  • Separate entity

  • Each new technology was touted as the “silver-bullet”

  • Each touted technology failure caused it to be viewed with suspicion and relegated to the closet OR it assumed its proper role in education


Technology in education1

Technology in Education

Current approach

  • Advocate integration of technology

  • “Information and Technology Skills”


Standards

Standards

  • Historically, technology standards in education as been treated as “another” separate entity. The approach in practice has typically been, here is a field AND oh-by-the-way there is that technology thing.

  • Structured check-sheet method used to make sure every objective in a process is accounted for up from one particular level to another level.

  • What to teach and when… “Guidebook to instruction”.


Standards1

Standards

Accomplishes

  • Manageable

  • Predictable

  • Measurable

  • Comprehensive (Checklist)

  • Breeds the concept of “accountability”


Standards in education

Standards in Education

Stakeholders

  • Administrators (School and LEA level)

  • Students

  • Parents

  • Society

  • Teacher

    • For the measure (assessment) of individual student level when entering a class so corrective action can be taken if needed to get them up to base level

    • To be used to plan/develop/engage educational environments and strategies with a knowledge of what learning outcomes are appropriate and expected


Computer technology skills standard course of study scos model phasing out

Computer/Technology Skills Standard Course of Study (SCOS Model)(Phasing out)

Describes the progressive development of knowledge and skills in six strands:

  • Societal and Ethical Issues

  • Database

  • Spreadsheet Keyboard

  • Utilization/Word Processing/Desktop Publishing

  • Multimedia/Presentation

  • Telecommunications/Internet


Scos model continued

SCOS Model continued…

  • Primary grades focus on the essential skills.

  • Upper elementary and middle grades build upon and reinforce skills through application and use in content area assignments/projects.

  • Secondary grades focus on application, refinement, and transfer of knowledge and skills to be used in content area assignments, in preparation for work, continued learning, and personal use.


Essential standards information and technology skills and computer technology skills scos

“The Computer/Technology Skills Standard Course of Study involves the development of skills over time. Computer/Technology Skills proficiency is not an end in itself, but lays a foundation for lifelong learning.”


Essential standards information and technology skills and computer technology skills scos

ISTE

ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) started bridging the gap with their National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) with “the purpose of leveraging the use of technology in K-12 education to enable students to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly digital society”.


Iste nets for students

ISTE NETS for Students

The current version of NETS for Students (NETSS) consists of performance indicators that “indicates and outlines what the student should be able to achieve within technological literacy by the completion of a school year.”


Iste nets for teachers

ISTE NETS for Teachers

The current versions of NETS for Teachers (NETST) include performance indicators that are designed to “provide teachers with the effective tools so they are able to engage their students, improve learning environments and their own professional practice as well as provide a positive model for their school community.”


Essential standards information and technology skills acre model

Essential Standards: Information and Technology Skills (ACRE Model).

  • Sources of Information

  • Informational Text

  • Technology as a Tool

  • Research Process

  • Safety and Ethical Issues

That revolution in education

…that revolution in education

  • Opportunity for a learner to learn

  • Engagement

  • Content delivery

  • Infrastructure

  • Extended classroom both in time and space

  • So the “goal is to teach the knowledge and techniques to develop technological literacy”

  • “Technological literacy is the ability to understand and evaluate technology.”
