2. Information and Communication Technology

2.1. A Way of Doing Things

2.1.1. Technology alters the way things are done in human activity and life. It allows us to use tools, processes and devices we wouldn't have had access to. We can use technology for: gathering and identifying information, classifying and organizing, summarizing and synthesizing, analyzing and evaluating, speculating and predicting.

2.2. ICT Intentions

2.2.1. The ICT curriculum is intended to be infused with all subject areas and education. Not to be taught on its own without connections to all other subject areas. Students grades K-12 will be challenged and taught to integrate technology in their learning, development, education, skills, environment and in problem solving. This is to create a better well-rounded education for the students, providing the best tools and resources for better education opprotunities.

2.3. Communicating, Inquiring, Decision Making and Problem Solving

2.3.1. The impact on students ability to assess and apply data. Use research and critically think about data and variables, and the tools used. Solve problems and communicate solutions and findings accurately to a variety of audiences. Students are able to apply skills to real life problems, and create solutions.

2.4. Foundational Operations, Knowledge and Concepts

2.4.1. About understanding the nature and affect of technology. Safety, ethical and ergonomic affects of technology as well. Multi-media technology, telecommunications and basic understanding for computer processes.

2.5. Processes for Productivity

2.5.1. Skills required to use, manipulate and learn from basic technology tools to create productivity. Graphical, visual, audio, data, research, navigation, collaboration, communication and other tools are necessary for increased productivity and learning.

2.6. ICT Curriculum

2.6.1. The ICT curriculum uses; specific outcomes, general outcomes, illustrative examples and assessment framework. General outcomes are what students are expected to know and gain. Specific outcomes are detailed outcome statements identifying student attitudes, skills and knowledge required to gain in the general outcomes. Illustrative examples are provided in support documents and area arranged by grade and subject so that all areas have the same resources. They are not limits but rather beginning directions that can be altered to fit student learning and lesson plans. Assessment framework is supportive framework that allows for student assessments and competencies for ICT outcomes in cores subject areas. Some sample assessments are provides for few subject areas at few grade levels.
