  2. 2. 2Acknowledgements:Author and Editor: Sean T. Moroney M.Ed., ICT Coordinator ICT/IT Dept.Sources of materials, guidelines:The International Society for Technology Education (ISTE)The International Baccalaureate Program (World IB)The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA)The Virginia State Department of EducationThe Massachusetts State Department of EducationIT/ICTCOMPUTER STUDIES PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY AND GOALSOur aim is to support student learning via the use of the tools of technology throughout the educational community.The primary focus is on developing and equipping students with a foundational computing skill-set, whichempowers their ability to use the tools of technology for success as lifelong learners.The basic goals of the computer studies program are to: ! Address the needs of students who enter school at varying degrees of proficiency. ! Equip all students with a foundation of core skills necessary for using technology as a tool for life-long learning and communication. ! Expose students to a wide variety of technology tools to meet these aims. ! Empower students in the continual exploration and use of an array of information technology tools for research, self-expression, communication and collaboration, creation, and invention,IT/ICTCOMPUTER STUDIES PROGRAM OVERVIEWThe IT/ICT computer studies program is built in alignment with the International Society of Technology NationalEducational Technology Standards. This framework of standards has been adopted or is referenced by a majority ofthe American state departments of education, and by a number of schools systems internationally.Students begin the IT/ICT computer studies program in the lower grades (k-5) by becoming acquainted with thecomputer, its related parts, and basic functions of both hard and software. In accordance with developmentallyappropriate standards and the school ESLs they begin to build a core skills foundation; working with the computerand learning such basics such as lab etiquette, ergonomics, observing safe computing and online practices,keyboarding/touch typing, and how to work with the desktop, typing, office productivity, and paint programs andother common software applications.In the middle grades (6-8), students spend as much time learning how the computer works as they do working withthe computer. The focus of instruction maintains and builds upon the foundation of core skills through more projectbased learning activities. Greater emphasis is put on academic aspects of the subject and studies are undertaken ofthe history and social impact of information technologies (I.e. computers) on human culture. Introduction of varioustools for research, and communication (school wiki, and personal websites), and self-expression are introduced topromote greater independence in learning.In the upper grades (9-12) students whom elect to further study IT/ICT are exposed to a wider array of tools andapplications for use in information technology. They further study the global impact of the “digital revolution orThis work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.

  3. 3. 3renaissance” and current emerging technology trends in society. There is a concentration on the application ofspecific hard and software tools for self-expression and the communication of ideas via the development cycle.Through this process, students demonstrate their proficiency via the design and completion of numerous projectse.g., digitally publishable media, web content, programming, and multi-media creation. It is expected that studentswhove completed these studies will have mastered the understanding and use of a basic foundation of IT/ICT toolsand possess the ability to not only to apply these skills in the “real world” but can use them to continue toindependently learn and communicate throughout their lives.MEANS OF ASSESMENTDepending on the age and range of developmental ability IT/ICT program students will be evaluated usingformative and summative methods. Some examples of this are: ! Consistent, general teacher observation of classroom participation during learning activities ! Ability to successfully learn, identify and operate a computer, its component parts and applications connected to its use i.e., school systems, the intra and internet. ! Evaluation of ability to produce outcomes with varied and developmentally appropriate content in lab work, homework and projects such as weekly logging of classroom experiences. ! Measure of progress though objective testing e.g., typing accuracy and speed (adjusted words per minute), chapter quizzes, and comprehension tests and exams. ! Evaluation through “authentic” assessment modes such as personal electronic portfolios.ISTE/NETS STANDARDS FOR EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY FOR ALL STUDENTS (current to 2007) 1.
