Since starting at a new school, I thought I would start to reconsider the junior Technology Curriculum, one thing that I need to do is to re look at level 4 and 5 of the technology curriculum, I look forward to a meeting this wednesday around how my new school covers these areas.
I have a number of ideas that I have been looking at through the csta voice publications,
one so far is the look at Digital Privacy, through Cybercivics http://web2.clarkson.edu/projects/cybercivics/privacy/
Also something to look at is eVoting http://web2.clarkson.edu/projects/cybercivics/evoting/
For more information on this pilot see http://web2.clarkson.edu/projects/cybercivics/
CyberCivics was developed as a Computer Science outreach program, designed to introduce diverse groups of talented high school students to hands-on activities that reflect the myriad ways in which computing technologies directly impact their everyday lives. The materials provided here were developed for the pilot offering during the Spring 2007 semester and one follow-on offering in Fall 2008.
Both of these would look at the Nature of technology?
