Course Overview

This instructional guide presents content and activities introducing the study of technology, especially in the elementary school. This guide is based on Technology for All Americans: A Rationale and Structure for the Study of Technology (Rationale and Structure)(ITEA, 1996) and Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (Standards for Technological Literacy/ STL) (ITEA/ITEEA, 2000/2002/2007).

This guide serves to help elementary educators understand the value of including a study of technology as part of the elementary curriculum. This is a new content area for many teachers. It can be a challenging area to understand and embrace. However, once STL is carefully reviewed in concert with implementation documents such as this one, it should be realized that this new “literacy” is essential and relevant for all students and can be integrated rather easily with existing curriculum. In fact, this content and the related instructional processes offer significant opportunities to invigorate any curriculum or instructional program. This document has been organized to help elementary teachers get started with a new and exciting instructional experience.
