Course Outcomes Level 1UETS STANDARD 4- Content Knowledge: The teacher understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structure of the discipline. STL Standard 3: Students will develop an understanding of the relationships among technologies and the connections between technology and other fields of study.·
- BMG: Technology transfer occurs when a new user applies an existing innovation developed for one purpose in a different function.
- BMH: Technological innovation often results when ideas, knowledge or skills are shared within a technology, among technologies or across other fields.
- BMI: Technological progress promotes the advancement of science and mathematics.
STL Standard 7: Students will develop an understanding of the influence of technology on history.
- BMG: Most technological development has been evolutionary, the result of a series of refinements to a basic invention.
- BMH: The evolution of society has been directly affected by, and has in turn affected, the development and use of tools and materials.
- BMI: Throughout history, technology has been a powerful force in reshaping the social, cultural, political, and economic landscape.
- BMO: The information age places emphasis on the processing and exchange of information.
STL Standard 10: Students will develop an understanding of the role of troubleshooting, research and development, invention and innovation, and experimentation in problem solving.·
- BMF: Troubleshooting is a problem-solving method used to identify the cause of a malfunction in a technological system.
- BMG: Invention is a process of turning ideas and imagination into devices and systems. Innovation is the process of modifying an existing product or system to improve it.
- BMH: Some technological problems are best solved through experimentation.
STL Standard 17: Students will develop an understanding of and be able to select and use information and communication technologies.·
- BML: Information and communication technologies include the inputs, processes, and outputs associated with sending and receiving information.
- BMM: Information and communication systems allow information to be transferred from human to human, human to machine, machine to human, and machine to machine.
- BMO: Communication systems are made up of source, encoder, transmitter, receiver, decoder, storage, retrieval, and destination.
- BMP: There are many ways to communicate information, such as graphic and electronic means.
- BMQ: Technological knowledge and processes are communicated using symbols, measurement, conventions, icons, graphic images, and languages that incorporate a variety of visual, auditory, and tactile stimuli.
