EPISD TV Studio and Instructional Technology present a multi-part series on the new Technology Applications TEKS. The new TA TEKS will go into effect with the 2012-13 school year. Get a jump on your knowledge of these new TEKS for grades K-8.
Each segment looks at a particular part of the new TEKS:
Segment 1: The New Technology Application TEKS: An Introduction
Where did the TEKS come from, what are they based on, and how do they compare to the old TA TEKS? What are the NETS-S Standards that the TEKS are based on?
Segment 2: The New Technology Application TEKS: The Six Strands
What are the six strands that make up the new Technology Application TEKS? In this segment, we look at each strand and how the TA TEKS are related to the NETS-S standards.
Segment 3: The New Technology Application TEKS: How to Read the TA TEKS
Most teachers know how to read TEKS, but this segment reminds us how the TEKS are structured. Introduction Statements, Knowledge and Skills Statements, the Strands, the Student Expectations, and Including Statements are all part of this segment.
Segment 4: The New Technology Application TEKS: Comparing Strands Across Grade Levels
Even though the strands are the same from grades K to 8, the student expectations change dramatically from grade level to grade level. This segment looks at the student expectations and how each grade level must be taught in order for students to become truly technology literate.
