1 6-8 Technology Education Program Evaluation Board of Education Program Report December 10, 2013

2 2 Grades 5-8 Part 100 Requirements Technology education means a program of instruction designed to assist all students in meeting State intermediate standards for technology. Technology education uses concepts of science, mathematics, social science and language arts in a hands-on, systems-based approach to problem solving that guides students in the understanding, design and development of systems, devices and products to serve human needs and wants. One unit of study must be completed by the end of eighth grade.

3 3 High School Part 100 Requirements Students first entering grade nine in the school year and thereafter shall have earned at least 22 units of credit. Such units of credit shall incorporate the commencement level of the State learning standards in: English language arts; social studies; mathematics, science, technology; the arts (including visual arts, music, dance and theatre); languages other than English; health, physical education, family and consumer sciences; and career development and occupational studies. The State learning standards in technology may be met either through a course in technology education or through an integrated course combining technology with mathematics and/or science. A commencement-level course in technology education may be used as the third unit of credit in science or mathematics but not both.

4 Introduction and Overview of Process The goal of the Guilderland Central School District Technology program is to strengthen students abilities to apply math and science concepts to engineering applications and to encourage students to pursue STEM careers. The programs are aligned to the Common Core standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, the NYS MST Standards, and the NETS standards. Through the completion of the middle school courses and the optional high school course work, students will develop an understanding of engineering design practices through hands-on, project work. In the middle school program, students will have to the ability to choose projects that will expose them to a variety of technology applications. Students are encouraged to pursue high school courses where advanced engineering design concepts will be taught. Participation in these courses will open children s eyes to potential careers in engineering, architecture, construction, and engineering technology. Regardless of career goals, the course work will help students develop 21 st Century learning skills including problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.

5 5 FMS Technology Education The Technology Education program at Farnsworth Middle School begins in 6 th grade as a twenty-week or semester-long course The program continues into the 7 th and 8 th grade years for all students This program meets and exceeds the New York State Education Department s Part 100 requirements for middle level programs Students are exposed to a variety of instructional methodologies, hands-on activities and learning opportunities that are meant to expose them to a wide variety of technologies The curriculum is planned to develop students skills by spiraling their work with computers and applications such as Microsoft Office and CAD Students leave the 8 th grade having had multiple opportunities to apply and create technology-based solutions to real world problems

6 6 Paxton Patterson Computer Modules Each of the Paxton Patterson Action Labs includes ten days of instruction during a variety of Integrated Instructional Units (IIUs). The modules are based on a rich curriculum which incorporates multimedia, video and hands-on activities. Students, under the guidance of their teachers, are able to choose and participate in two of the following programs: Alternative Energy Audio Communications Computer Graphics and Animation CNC Computer Numeric Control Digital Music Electricity Energy and Power Environment and Ecology Flight Lasers Materials Processing Machines (Mechanisms) Robotics Structural Engineering Video Production

10 Students follow written directions as well as read & understand technical writing

11 Uses integrated hands-on activities Students can apply the concepts learned in the module.

12 12 Engineering and Design All students participate in a design project. Each year students are presented with first developing a design specific to a long-range project and then realizing this project through its production. Time and attention is given in the production labs to introduce them to machine operation and safety. Students first introduction to a design project begins in 6 th grade. student are introduced to the development of a design of an ergonomic handle to their buck saw which they later translate into a finished product in the Production Lab.

13 13 7 th Grade Design Project In 7 th Grade their project culminates in the design, testing and production of a catapult. Through this design project they are exposed to machine and tool safely in a production lab. Computer Aided Design (CAD) software is used by students to create precise and accurate plans. Through the CAD software they are introduced to the components of both two dimensional and three dimensional drawing and design. Students also utilize the design software Inventor which is also used as part of the high school program, Project Lead the Way.

14 14 8 th Grade Design Project In 8 th grade this process is further developed through the Marble Mania project. Their skills in three dimensional drawing and collaboration are further extended.
