Primary School Technology Curriculum

Overview

The Primary Technology curriculum enables all learners to achieve basic ICT skills as well as a range of levels of application and thinking previously inconceivable without technology on their journey to become empowered learners. This philosophy is translated into making connections to support cross-curricular development in the use of technology to support learning across all areas of learning. All lessons and outcomes are developed in reference to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Students, and the TPACK framework, as teachers practice and model the key link between technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge to allow ways for all students to achieve higher levels of learning.

 

總覽

小學的應用科技課程讓所有學習者能掌握基本的ICT技能,以及讓他們的學習旅程因一系列前所未有的應用和思維水平變得更強大。這種理念被轉化為建立以支援跨學科開發的聯繫,從而通過利用科技來支援各個領域學習的發展。

 

所有的課堂及學習目標皆是根據國際教育技術學會(ISTE)學生標準TPACK框架制定。因為老師的教學及實踐,是連結著科技、教學法及內容知識的關鍵,能讓所有學生提供更佳的學習水平和環境。

Knowledge

Students will acquire and construct new knowledge as they progress and develop their current knowledge of technology and how supports their learning and everyday lives. They achieve this by being provided with opportunities to explore, extend and evaluate as they become empowered learners in a range of simple and complex learning opportunities. Being immersed in a broad range of software and hardware they will develop an appreciation and understanding of their connection and impact on society.

Process

Students will develop processing skills as they plan, think and work collaboratively on a range of different software and hardware systems. This is achieved by creating opportunities to think critically and computationally about how these systems function and can be used to solve real-world issues. By thinking logically, sequentially and reflectively students will explore, create and evaluate their own thinking through a variety of process-driven opportunities. Students will, in turn, develop a deeper understanding and responsibility when using technology.

Application

Students will be challenged to apply knowledge and process skills to design creative solutions to a range of real-world problems. They will be required to collaborate locally and globally as they are supported to be creative and descriptive in this approach. This allows students to enrich their understanding of technology and how it can be utilized in all areas of learning and their daily lives. In turn, students will plan, investigate, execute and reflect on processes to solve a range of projects and problems independently and collaboratively.

Standards

The four standards to help identify key areas of focus, for teachers and students, to simplify and make the learning achievable for all students. They have been developed from key elements from a range of other curricula as well as what is currently taught in our context, as well as future development of technology. All standards are covered across each grade level at varying degrees of outcomes on a continuum of growth in knowledge, skills, and application.

 

標準

這四個標準能協助教師和學生確定重點關注的領域,從而使學習者的學習得以簡化及實踐。它們是根據一系列其他課程的關鍵原素,以及目前教學的內容和未來科技發展而開發的。
