NAEP Technological Literacy Hearing | January 25, 2010

I received the following information in an email.
“Thursday, January 28, The National Assessment Governing Board is conducting a public hearing to obtain comment on the draft Technological Literacy assessment framework for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). Public and private parties and organizations are invited to present written and/or oral testimony. The hearing will be held in the Washington Court Hotel, 525 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20001 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST. For more information, please see www.nagb.org

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. The Governing Board is responsible for developing the content and design of all assessments in NAEP, for which the Board sets policy.”

Focusing on the Southwestern Pennsylvania region, CivicsLab puts elementary and middle school students in virtual control of decision-making in their communities to encourage civic participation, critical thinking, and sense of place. In CivicsLab, players will assume positions of power in the community from an urban, suburban or rural perspective and explore how decisions-based on social need and demand, proper planning (as defined by our civic experts), political pressure, and most importantly, their imaginations-might impact the community. Through manipulation of real mapping information and current data sets, students navigate social and political pressures to explore the cause and effect of civic investment and public policy as they attempt to create a sustainable future for their region.
