what are current standards
What are current standards?
  • Keyboarding in Grade 7 or 8
  • Computer Tech: Introduction (or approved substitution) required for all CTE Completers
  • Computerized Business Applications (or Computerized Applications I & II) required for all Business and Marketing Completers
  • Computerized Business Applications (or Comp. Apps I & II) also required for Standards of Assurance, (EAST will also count for the technology standard).
what do the common core state standards say
What do the Common Core State Standards Say?
  • Digital Tools beginning in Grade 2
  • Type a minimum of one page in a single setting in Grade 4
  • Type a minimum of two pages in a single setting in Grade 5
how to address this
How to address this?
  • Collaboration with ADE to push keyboarding down to elementary and developing technology courses for middle school
  • Committee of teachers brought in to develop courses for middle school (teaching much of CBA content in Grades 5-8)
  • Committee of teachers developed a course for high school above and beyond CBA content since it would be covered in middle school
  • Commissioner's Memo went out, then was retracted.
  • Email from me went out to all principals and superintendents in June 2013, explaining that these courses are still available --- “The Jim Short Memo”
so now what
So now what?
  • Even though STANDARDS OF ASSURANCE HAVE NOT CHANGED, you may still choose to implement our new course and move keyboarding down.
  • In order to make these changes, you must have multi-year transition plan, with keyboarding before technology courses.
think about the parcc assessment
Think about theParcc Assessment
  • PARCC will be given beginning at Grade 3
  • PARCC will also use technology throughout the design and implementation of the assessment system. The overall assessment system design will include a mix of constructed response items, performance-based tasks, and computer-enhanced, computer-scored items. The PARCC assessments will be administered via computer, and a combination of automated scoring and human scoring will be employed.

planning your attack
Planning your attack
  • First plug-in the courses you know are being offered next year (Keyboarding, CBA, and CT-Intro)
  • Next plug-in Keyboarding in grade 4, or earlier if you wish, repeat keyboarding at that grade across the school years.
  • Next, when the 4th graders of 2014-2015 become 5th graders in 2015-2016 they can then take 355910 Input Technologies (rose block to rose block)
  • Repeat Input Technologies across.
  • Complete this process. Remember when Grade 4 keyboarding students get to the grade you currently teach keyboarding, you can drop it from that grade.
