About 8th Grade Technology

Introduction to Technology Education, Part 2, is a 20 week course designed to enable Eighth grade students to enhance their understanding of the concepts that underlie  technological systems. Students will learn about the  influence of  technological systems on their lifestyle,   including home, school, and the world of work.

During each activity, students will gain more experience in problem solving, decision making, and creative thinking.    Eighth grade students learn by application, developing skills  with tools, machines, and processes for solving technical problems. Students will analyze problem situations, communicate ideas through verbal expression,

visual depiction, and learn cooperation and competitiveness through team interaction.

Each student will be required to use the computer as a tool for storing, manipulating, and retrieving data. This course of study has been developed with the expectation that  instruction will be provided through hands-on,             laboratory based activities.
