This course focuses on curriculum leadership for the ten broad-based technology subject areas as described in the Ministry of Education policy documents titled, The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 9-10: Technological Education (2009) and The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 11-12: Technological Education (2009): Communications Technology, Computer Technology, Construction Technology, Green Industries, Hairstyling and Aesthetics, Health Care, Hospitality and Tourism, Manufacturing Technology, Technological Design and Transportation Technology.
Our work as broad-based technology educators seems increasingly complex. Our role is to prepare young adults for a complex technological world of multi-tasking, broader understanding of related technologies, up-to-date understanding of the use of computers, hand held devices, software, and on-line knowledge forums in the related broad-based technology and a move from mastery skills development alone to higher-order thinking skills involved in technological problem-solving, regardless of destination of the learner â€” university, college or workplace. Layered onto this complexity is the reality that many exceptional students and students 'at risk' are directed towards broad-based technology courses in secondary schools. These multi-dimensional expectations of broad-based technology courses change the role of technological education teachers and leaders as well.
This Honour Specialist course examines some of these critical issues while building on your professional experience as a Technological Education teacher and developing strategies you may find useful in a leadership position. In addition to the online materials you will have additional readings that are imbedded throughout the course. This course focuses on five topics: Philosophy for Technological Education, How Students Learn (including assessment and evaluation), Curriculum Design, Research in Technological Education and Leadership and the Community.
1) OCT QUALIFICATIONS We will use the OCT number you provide during online registration to confirm that your Certificate of Qualifications shows: Certification in 3 separate technological education subjects, one of which is at both the Grades 9/10 and 11/12 levels (for a total of four qualifications).
An entry for I/S Computer Studies - Computer Technology or one of the following Part 1 courses is deemed to be equivalent to one qualification in grades 9 and 10 in a technological education subject : Co-op Part 1, Design and Technology Part 1, English as a Second Language Part 1, Guidance and Career Education Part 1, Integration of Information and Computer Technology in Instruction Part 1, or Special Education Part 1.
An example of an acceptable set of qualifications is as follows: Construction Grades 9/10, Construction Grades 11/12, Manufacturing Grades 9/10, Special Education Part 1
Four qualifications in grades 9 and 10 in technological education subjects listed in Schedule B and a specialist qualification.
Certification in 2 separate technological education subjects, both of which are at the Grades 9/10 and 11/12 levels.
2) CONFIRMATION OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE FORM Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your School Board confirming that you have two years (388 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher, one year (194 days) of which is in the subject area of this course.
*The Ontario College of Teachers defines "Supervisory Official" as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity.
For a teacher employed by a private school, the "supervisory official" is the Ministry of Education official (Education Officer) appointed to your school. For overseas experience the appropriate Supervisory Official is the person your Principal reports to.
