Information Processing and the Management of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning

Leadership and Learning Conference,


Well-constructed Information Management Systems (IMSs) are designed specifically to allow for the unobtrusive and automatic acquisition of data describing the key operations associated with the interlocking cycle of relationships between curriculum, instruction, and assessment. This paper argues that IMS software is an essential element to be integrated into the conceptualization, adoption, and maintenance of any curricula and instructional processes that are designed or implemented. Good responsive software design allows for the establishment of relationships among curriculum elements, instructional process, and assessment and evaluation. Moving toward outcomes-based education will help schools monitor their performance more effectively, but realizing this goal requires heavy demands of teachers and administrators, demands that can be alleviated through IMSs. The new information technology available can assist in the transformation of schools for the future. (Contains one figure and eight references.) (SLD)
