Applied Technology (Grades 6-8)

The Applied Technology curriculum reflects the emergence of new instructional technologies related to engineering, design, and computational thinking (programming).  Students in grades six through eight experience opportunities to participate in the engineering design process to realize the relationship between theory and practical application.  Design challenges require students to implement problem solving strategies, creativity, and teamwork and are fully aligned to standard 8.2 for technology education, engineering, design, and computational thinking (programming).  Emerging instructional technology such as 3D printing, video game design, circuitry design and microcontroller computer programming are infused throughout all three grade levels.

 

Educational Technology (Grades K-8)

The Educational Technology curriculum reflects the emergence of new instructional technologies related to engineering, design, and computational thinking (programming) as they relate to the NJ Student Learning Standards for Technology 8.2 in grades K-5.  Students in grades kindergarten through five will experience opportunities to explore technology as it relates to the experience of engineering and design.  As students progress through the elementary grades they will experience design challenges requiring them to implement problem solving strategies, collaboration, and creativity.  Additionally, the free instructional resources provided by Code.org are incorporated into standards 8.2, providing students with an opportunity to experience computational thinking (programming) in grades kindergarten through eighth.  

 

Appendix I communicates the district’s keyboarding plan.  Appendix II contains the standards and instructional guidance for the NJ Student Learning Standards for Personal Finance 9.1 and Career Awareness/Exploration 9.2. (grades 4, 6, 7, and 8) and a comprehensive list of resources related to career exploration.

 

Engineering and Design (Grades 6-8)

Through cross curricular engineering and design challenges students will be posed problems and scenarios in which they will implement the engineering design process, while building upon Mathematics and English Language Arts skills aligned to the NJ State Learning Standards (NJSLS).  Design challenges require students to implement problem solving strategies, creativity, and teamwork.  All activities are designed for safe and effective use of tools, equipment, materials, processes, and techniques within the context of the human-designed world.  All instructional activities are designed for safe and effective use of tools, equipment, materials, processes, and techniques within the context of the human-designed world.
