Technology in Curriculum Development
...TECHNOLOGY IN CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT Introduction Technology can no longer be ignored at this point in time of our lives. Truly, technology is and has been incorporated into and has shaped our society. Technology affects numerous components and institutions of the society including education. Thereby, adult education is neither exempt nor immune to its effects. Integration and inclusion of technology to adult education facilitates learning within the adult learners rather than hindering it (Wang, 2011). However, inclusion and integration of technology into adult education has faced several challenges from the people involved in it to the institution that comprise such a sector of education. Most of the write-ups and research have been focused on the teacher who needs to have and/or be equipped with knowledge in technology as well as the acceptance and readiness of the adult students towards technology integration as well as on the digital division that technology might do to the society (Johnson, 2011; Langille, 2004; Kok, 2006). However, all of such challenges have been answered already or continuously answered wherein most scholars agreed that technology does have more beneficial effects than bad ones. Seldom focused on the curriculum development of the adult education wherein it is one of the vital factors to which the teachers and adult students have and are basing their pedagogies and learning. Curriculum comes from a Latin word currere which means to run but......

...CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT:DYNAMIC PROCESS Curriculum development is not an exact science. In most cases, it is a dynamic process that involves many people, often with different priorities, vested interest and needs. Priorities of politicians and parents can be very different, as can the priorities of teachers and employers. But it can be argued that each of these groups has a legitimate interest in what is included in the curriculum, and most significantly, in its outputs. Curriculum has been a rich source of research and theory for many decades. While the debate has been complex and robust; it has resulted, at least in English-speaking countries in two prominent models of curriculum development being proposed; 1. objectives – sequential, rational or behavioral model 2. interactive or dynamic OBJECTIVE MODEL Conceptualizes the curriculum development as a sequential series of stages 1. stating objectives 2. selecting learning experiences or subject 3. organizing learning experiences or subject 4. evaluating – whether objectives have been met INTERACTIVE MODEL Conceptualizes curriculum development as a less predictable process which can begin with any element or stage. Is continuing process of interaction, refinement, and review. THE CURRICULUM RESOURCE PACK DEVELOPMENT PROJECT Acknowledge the legitimacy of both curriculum development models.

...CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT AS A POLITICAL AND TECHNICAL ACTIVITY BY ALFRED FAYOSE Introduction In the views of Marsh and Willis (2007) curriculum development is “a collective and intentional process or activity directed at beneficial curriculum change”. Curriculum development involves making basic decisions as to who will partake in the curriculum decision-making process and how it will proceed (Adentwi and Sarfo, 2009). The decisions made, however, are both political and technical depending on the individual stages. The stages of the curriculum development process include planning, designing, implementation and evaluation. Curriculum development as a political activity Curriculum development can be considered as partly political because the planning stage of the curriculum development process is said to be a lay political activity. Curriculum planning, especially at the national level is considered to be a political activity due to the reasons below. First and foremost, curriculum planning is designed to ensure adequate representation of the opinions of all the major stakeholders in education. In curriculum planning, the emphasis is on the interest of the people who matter most in education. For instance, teachers, students, parents and religious bodies among others who are stakeholders are represented at the planning stage not because of their competence or technical know-how but because of their interest. Furthermore, the government of the day seeks to promote its economic......

The Role of Curriculum in Teacher Development
...views of curriculum that we, as mathematics educators, often encounter. (In this essay, "we" refers to the group at TERC that has been working through these ideas while developing the K-5 curriculum, Investigations in Number, Data, and Space.) One is that teachers, especially elementary teachers, are so under-prepared in mathematics that the curriculum must do everything for them. It must tell them exactly what to do, when to do it, and in what order. Once this was called "teacher-proof" curriculum. Now, of course, that term is no longer fashionable, so teacher-proof-ness, when it is espoused at all, is couched in other terms. For example, a textbook representative recently described to me the lessons in their teacher's guide by saying, "And it's all scripted for the teacher, so that they know what questions to ask." This view of curriculum assumes that there is a Right Way to organize and teach the curriculum, and that, if we have a curriculum that embodies this right way, students will learn mathematics well. Another view holds that it is only the teacher who knows her students' learning needs well enough to continually modify the classroom environment in response to those needs. Therefore, the teacher must develop her/his own curriculum. Sometimes this view admits that, because teachers are not yet adequately prepared to teach mathematics, we may need innovative curricula now -- temporarily -- until we have accomplished the job of large-scale teacher development. This......

...DepEd issues Implementing rules of Kindergarten Act MANILA, Philippines - To ensure that the unique needs of diverse learners will be addressed; the Kindergarten Education General Curriculum will cater to the needs of pupils with special needs and disabilities and create a catch-up program for children under difficult circumstances. Kindergarten education was institutionalized as part of basic education and was implemented partially in school year 2011-2012. It was made mandatory and compulsory for entrance to Grade 1. The general kindergarten program is the 10-month program provided to children who are at least five years old in elementary schools using thematic and integrative curriculum to ensure the development of foundation skills among children to prepare them for Grade 1. Republic Act (RA) 10157, otherwise known as “The Kindergarten Education Act,” provides that the curriculum is designed to cater to the needs of the learners with special needs or children who are gifted, those with disabilities, and other diverse learners by adopting services in addition to the standards provided, such as Head start Program for the Gifted, Early Intervention Program for Children with Disabilities, Early Intervention Program for Children with Disabilities, Kindergarten Madrasah Program (KMP), Indigenous People (IP) Education, and Catch-Up Program for Children under Especially Difficult Circumstances. The Head start Program for the Gifted is a comprehensive program for the gifted......

Policies for Curriculum Development
...Policies For Curriculum Development Ashanti C. Chambers Grand Canyon University 10/30/2013 Policies For Curriculum Development Instructional practices and there implementation are crucial to the success or failure of students. In order to achieve high-level learners based on a standardized curriculum, instructional practices must be examine and analyzed to ensure that all student’s needs are met. There are proven instructional practices that have led to higher level learning and student success that are engaging and allow students to be responsible for their own learning. By aligning these practices with a standard based curriculum, students can be successful at applying their learning to real world problem solving while passing the curriculum-based assessments to determine student growth. Marzano’s High Yield Strategies It has been said that teacher are made, not born. Robert J. Marzano used this premise to start his work on creating instructional strategies that can make any teacher an effective instructor. An important study during the late 1960’s indicated that teachers form expectations about their students’ chances for academic success and then interact with students on the basis of those expectations (Marzano, 2010, p. 82). This basically says that teachers often treats students according to what they expect each can do based on their abilities. With these expectations, students will usually start to act in accordance with the expectation that this......

... A. Tudy Dean of Graduate School Acting Director, Center for Social Development Research Cor Jesu College Philippines CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT UNDERSTANDING CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT Every institution has a primary task of preparing students to reach their highest potential. Essentially, the issue could be addressed through its curriculum. Curriculum is defined as everything learners experienced at school. Bandi & Wales (2005) defined it as a race to be run, a series of obstacles or hurdles (subjects) to be passed . It has been viewed also as the totality of experiences that a public receives through the manifold activities that learners experience in the school, workshop, playground, library, laboratory and in the informal contacts between teachers and pupils aside from the academic subjects traditionally taught in the school. Marsh and Willis on the other hand view curriculum as all the “experiences in the classroom which are planned and enacted by the teacher, and also learned by the students. A curriculum is the instructional programme for the pupils to achieve their goals. As people go with the trends in this era of technological advancements, curriculum goes with it as well. Curriculum development has been one of the focal points in every institution to promote quality and competitive education. Almost all countries already have an established curriculum to meet the global standards and possibly prepare the students to be......

...Curriculum Development Curriculum development is an evolving process. Societal expectations, new technologies and growing understanding of the learning process all drive the educational community to adapt and develop new strategies for developing and presenting needed curriculum. Curriculum can be defined in many ways. At its most fundamental roots, curriculum is a roadmap of planned ideas that are aimed at assisting the learner to acquire knowledge. In a more constructive sense, curriculum is an educational plan to assist in the delivery of information related to specific subject areas which meet specified learning goals (Dowd & Battles, 1996). When developing curriculum, it is important to recognize the issues and trends that affect the desired outcome of the educational process. In order to understand the changes that are occurring within curriculum development, it is important to recognize the fundamental principles utilized in the curriculum development process.

The Process of Curriculum Development and Instruction and the Role of the Teacher.

Assessment data from multiple sources are analyzed by teachers and administrators when making curricular and instructional decisions.
