ICT Skills Tables

The following tables were initially drawn up by Piopio College in Excell. They have been converted to HTML from here. Congradulations to Piopio College for tackling such a controversial and very large task of looking at ICT aspects and integrating them with the curriculum. A cursory look at the tables will produce queries from everyone, and a closer look will produce a lot more queries. This is because there are a huge number of variables represented in these tables, and no one reader is going to identify will all the factors represented in these tables. Instead, this table should be considered a starting point for schools and teachers to use in order to assess their own local circumstances, constraints and educational requirements. Then modify the table to suit your individual needs.

So, how to go about modifying the table without ending up with an unstructured mess? One way is to look at the curriculum and the learning strands at each Level and assess what you feel is an appropriate interpretation for your school. For instance the tables do not introduce "discrimination and critical skills" until Y12-13, virtually at the last moment. You may well disagree with this view and wish to introduce this aspect in lower classes. The implication here is that the activity of independant student websurfing for resource information for a project is tied to this strand. Therefore projects which make use of independant student websurfing should be employed only at the stage at which this skill is considered to be appropriate at the school level. Tied to to this is "personal responsibility issues of obeying internet use policy" and so on. Thus there is a network of interrelated factors which dictate to a large extent what is appropriate for a school to undertake as its Policy of ICT curriculum implementation.

Practice and Principles

A brief look at these tables gives the impression that they are focused on the toys rather than on learning experiences or principles. This is a natural result of this "first draft" which looks at the most obvious. It is then our task to work back to focus more on educational values rather than specific practicalities. There are two important factors which these tables hide. Firstly is the difference between "learning about" and "practicing with". Secondly there is difference between "knowing how to use something" and "the principles by which something works". The tables focus on knowing how to use something and on practice which is the educational path of a technology course. They omit the more theoretical focus of learning about something and knowing how it works used by a scientific educational approach.

It is probably clear from the above paragraph that if you got a few science teachers and a few technology teachers into a room to discuss the way ICT should be taught in a school, that blood might flow. This doesn't have to be the case. There are so many practical constraints as to what it is possible to do, that the constraints alone tend to dictate the curriculum objectives at each level.

Formal Instruction or Intergrated Assimilation

The issue of physical constraints is important enough to play a determining role in the type of policy a school may adopt. A well-resourced school may be able to integrate ICT into the everyday fabric of class work. For instance, Year 1 children may draw the teacher with a simple Paint program at the same time as they draw the teacher with crayons.They may type a few lines and create the material for a webpage at the same time as they make their first bigbook page. A poorly resourced school may have to orient its ICT curriculum on the basis that ICT activities are delayed and out of synch with the natural adoption of basic communication skills. So at a poorly resourced school, introduction to a word processor would be a formal course on the features of the software and a traditional course in typing skills. The delivery of the basic curriculum would have to be invested in traditional non-ICT media. This difference in style effects the kind of projects that a teacher can embark on with the class.

This constraint determines a lot of the content of the tables. The Tables do not assume that the school is well ICT-resourced. ICT skills, such as using a simple paint program are not included because they are a fun activity in a Y1 class. Rather the use of a paint program is included at the point at which it is required to meet ICT curriculum objectives within the structure of the knowledge base. For instance, simply learning how to load and save files is not particularly useful until the student is also able to understand the file structure model, file types, parent-child relationships, what directories are and how they are different from files and so on.

Continuity

The next principle to bear in mind is that of continuity of practical experience. If a student learns how to use a particular piece of software which requires some investment in learning and in skills, it is not appropriate to withdraw it, or to remove the functions and tasks associated with it, so that these skills and learning gather dust. This just generates the "what did they make us learn that for?" reaction from students, quite appropriately. Continuity works in two ways. Continuous availability and recourse to the initial ICT function after it has been taught, continued practice. In addition continuity should be able to be developed from one skill to more complex skills. As an example the web provides excellent motivation for students to engage in Expressive Writing with sponateous and genuine feedback from others outside the writer's immediate circle ( those to whom the writer could just as easily speak). email is suitable for Level 2, but for Level 3 on something like a webjournal or personal webpage is more appropriate for developing writing skills. Schools should make sure that they can provide this continuity of development in a timely sequence related to the students developement. Students used to using email for sponatenous written communication will find a return to writing essays on paper to a limited or non-existant audience very discouraging.

Core or Specialised

Finally there is the issue of whether a skill should be part of the core curriculum or whether it should be part of a specialised field. For instance, how many school leavers are actually going to be designing relational databases from scratch? A skill such as this should have a firm place in the ICT implementation policy, but that does not mean that it will be standard course material unless there is a specific need. So there may be three levels of ICT implementation: core, specialised and on-call specialised.

Curriculum Strands

The tables highlight a specific clutch of curriculum strands which apply across a sequence of levels. Firstly - the levels:
Curriculum Levels
from "The NZ Curriculum Framework"
Y11 <= Level 8 <= Y13
Y10 <= Level 7 <= Y13
Y9 <= Level 6 <= Y13
Y7 <= Level 5 <= Y12
Y5 <= Level 4 <= Y10
Y3 <= Level 3 <= Y8
Y2 <= Level 2 <= Y6
Y1 <= Level 1 <= Y4

The Tables highlight six of the eight curriculum areas: Health, Language, Science, Social Sciences, Technology and The Arts. One may wonder at this selection but it is significant not for the inclusion of these particular areas but more for certain aspects in each area - such as "try out innovative and original ideas" which is something common to the Techonolgy and Arts areas but not so much to Mathematics. Within these Areas particular strands are important, which have relevence at certain levels. These then relate back to the Years illustrated in the above table.
