Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am a new technology teacher and the current school I am at has no curriculum for technology. I was wondering does any one have a curriculum or suggests where I can find one for technology k-8. I want to start to develop and implement. Thanks.

My kids love it because it's web based and they can work at home as well as at school. My fourth graders are leaving this year typing about 40wpm. In addition to the keyboarding, it has actual technology lessons, which I used more when I was self-contained. Now, I basically have my classes do the "online lessons" where it's interactive to learn parts of the computer, how to print, how to use a word processor, etc. My older kids do the "how to search, online safety, cyberbullying, etc."

Goals and Task Analysis

If I were going to build a K-8 curriculum, I'd set goals for the 8th grade first. What would you like the 8th graders to have mastered when they graduate? I'd want them to be well versed in the big three Office programs. They should know their way around the internet and be able to create a simple website. They should have typing skills. They should know how to find and filter information. That sort of thing

Once you choose goals, decide how you're going to get them there starting in K.

I agree with bigwigrabbit by setting goals for what you want to accomplish for the 8th grade and working backwards.

By 8th grade I want the students to be proficient in using Word, Exel, and PowerPoint...but if you don't have that there are other similar applications that will work and if they learn them they can easily adapt to others.

As far as rubrics go...I tend to search for them online and then adapt them to my needs
