ODE | Streetsboro Staff Help Develop Model Curriculum for Technology

30 August 2022 – Streetsboro Staff Help Develop Model Curriculum for Technology

A Model Curriculum offers local educators in-depth guidance about Ohio’s Learning Standards. It also explains related skills and knowledge students are to learn in each grade and course.

Two staff members from Streetsboro City Schools took part in ODE’s Model Curriculum development team over several years.

Mr. Dan Stitzel, District Technology Coach, and Andreas Johansson, the district’s Director of Operations worked with several other educators from across the state to develop materials and resources.

Johansson also served on the team that revised and re-developed the Learning Standards for Technology for the state of Ohio, adopted in 2017.

The purpose of Ohio’s Model Curriculum is to provide clarity to the standards, as well as information to assist educators in planning and implementing their local curricula. The model curriculum is not a complete curriculum nor is it mandated for use.

Following the adoption of Ohio’s Learning Standards for Technology, educators from across the state formed advisory and working groups that drove the process to develop Ohio’s Model Curriculum for Technology.

Educators, parents, and community members had the opportunity to provide feedback during a public comment period on the draft model curriculum developed by the advisory and working groups.

After completing the revision process, Ohio’s Model Curriculum for Technology was presented to the State Board of Education and adopted in July 2022.

Through this process, the model curriculum reflects best practices, the expertise of many Ohio educators, and the varied perspectives of Ohio residents.
