Phases of Technacy Expectations and Complexity.
TECHNACY COMPLEXITY EXPECTATIONS are arranged in three broad PHASES (columns) to guide the Educator. They describe increasing exposure to contextual and systemic complexity of technological application.read more ...
The EMERGENT phase of technacy development presents an early, developing or novice level of simple and tangible technology project activity. The learner encounters an aspect of at least one essential Technology Type or context of application that is novel to them.read more ...
The COMPETENT phase of technacy development is identified by contextually relevant codified skills and knowledge.read more ...
The SOPHISTICATED phase of technacy development is identified by "the project's" high degree of complexity, high risk/high return scenario and/or expecting success at an extreme scale of application.read more ...
The PLAY domain of innovation describes the initial phase of exploratory engagement and foundations to innovation attribute and prowess expectations in technacy development. PLAY capability is relative to the dominant Technology Type and/or applied context being learned.view
Skills Domain (Consolidated Capabilities)
The SKILLS domain (Consolidated Capabilities) of innovation describes the most common level of capability development by most people. This includes level of innovation attribute and prowess expectations in technacy development.view
The PIONEER domain of innovation describes the highest, and most difficult to sustain, level of innovation attribute and prowess expectations in technacy development. PIONEER capability is relative to the dominant Technology Type and/or applied context being learned.view
