New national standards for technology literacy going into public hearings

January 16, 2010 at 3:54 pm 5 comments

John Pane sent me this link (Thanks, John!).  Turns out that a set of national standards for knowledge about technology have been established by the National Assessment Governing Board, and they are having public hearings.  I’ve not heard of this group, and I can’t find the standards document on their website.  If anyone else finds it, can you link it here in a comment, please?

The framework covers a broad range of content and practices related to technology and society; design and systems; and information and communication technology. The draft document was developed by a wide panel of experts in fields such as education, engineering, policy, business and communication, with their recommendations of what knowledge and skills students at the 4th, 8th, and 12th grades should have in technology.
