MS Technology Course Offerings



Technology
Grades:  6, 7    Course Length:  20 weeks

Technology education is a comprehensive overview of the rapid changes in the technological society of the present and the future.  Class discussions include the study of the future of technology and its applications to occupations.

This introduction to technology program is developed in concert with the New York State Regents mandates.  It is a forty-week program, with 20 weeks of instruction in grades 6 and 7.  Activities are based on ten learning modules, from the history of technology to the use of computers and automated systems.  It is stressed that technology is actually the application of academic knowledge to solve man’s practical problems and extend human capabilities.  Technology education enhances science, math, social studies and language arts skills, and gives a practical application of this knowledge.

Areas of student exploration are communication, information retrieval, transportation, energy, construction, electronics and computer application.  Students work in cooperative groups and become involved using the problem solving approach to understand technology and its application to our every day lives.  Students are taught through hands on lab activities utilizing materials, tools, instruments and equipment for the safe completion of their experiences.
