Technology (K-5) n n Technology Outcomes (APEF) Integrated throughout curriculum. Examples: You and Your World (K-2), English Language Arts Curriculum (K-3) and 4, 5
Example (K-2) You and Your World n n Grade 2, Unit 2 - Technology and Community In this unit, students will explore changes that have occurred in their community. Emphasis will also be given to changes in technology and how these have affected lifestyles. Students will be expected to: n n n 2. 2. 1 describe how people contribute to making change in communities; 2. 2. 2 demonstrate an understanding that technology has changed over time to meet their needs, wants, and interests; and 2. 2. 3 predict ways their community might change in the future and how they might contribute to that future.
Example – Grade 3 Science n Unit 1 Life Science: Plant Growth and Changes n Skill: Analysing and Interpreting n 202 -4 construct and label concrete-object graphs, pictographs, or bar graphs n Students should construct a bar graph once all the data are collected. This can be used to reinforce mathematics graphing skills. Technology, such as spreadsheet and commercial software, can be used to generate the graph.
Example – Language Arts 4, 5 n n n General Curriculum Outcome 10: Students will be expected to use a range of strategies to develop effective writing and other ways of representing and to enhance their clarity, precision and effectiveness. By the end of Grade 4 students will be expected to use technology with increasing proficiency in writing and other forms of representing By the end of Grade 5 students will be expected to use technology with increasing proficiency to create, revise, edit, and publish texts
