Georgia Department of EducationInformation Technology Career ClusterEmbedded ComputingCourse Number: 11.42700Course Description:The demand for programming (software development) has gone well beyond desktopcomputers and the web, into a ubiquitous world of personal devices, smart cars, intelligentfactories, and even more. These systems interact with us directly, as well as with each other.This course will focus on the interaction of programming and devices, using data from varioussensors and sources in order to make decisions, take actions, and more. A common industryterm to describe this work is Internet of Things. Students will show first-hand howprogramming and machines interact to accomplish common and essential tasks throughoutour society.Embedded Computing is the third course in the Internet of Things pathway. Students enrolledin this course should have successfully completed Introduction to Digital Technology andComputer Science Principles. After mastery of the standards in this course, students shouldbe prepared to earn an industry-recognized credential in this career area.Course Standard 1IT-EP-1The following standard is included in all CTAE courses adopted for the Career Cluster/Pathways.Teachers should incorporate the elements of this standard into lesson plans during the course. Thetopics listed for each element of the standard may be addressed in differentiated instructionmatching the content of each course. These elements may also be addressed with specific lessonsfrom a variety of resources. This content is not to be treated as a unit or separate body ofknowledge but rather integrated into class activities as applications of the concept.Standard: Demonstrate employability skills required by business and industry.The following elements should be integrated throughout the content of this course.1.1Communicate effectively through writing, speaking, listening, reading, and interpersonalabilities.Person-to-PersonTelephone andCell Phone andCommunicating AtListeningEtiquetteEmail EtiquetteInternet EtiquetteWorkInteracting withTelephoneUsing BlogsImprovingReasons, Benefits,Your BossConversationsCommunication Skillsand BarriersInteracting withBarriers to PhoneUsing Social MediaEffective OralListening teracting withMaking andEffective WrittenWays We FilterCo-workersReturning CallsCommunicationWhat We HearInteracting withMaking Cold CallsEffective NonverbalDeveloping aSuppliersSkillsListening AttitudeHandlingEffective Word UseShow You AreConference CallsListeningHandlingGiving and ReceivingAsking QuestionsUnsolicited CallsFeedbackObtaining FeedbackGetting Others toListenGeorgia Department of EducationAugust 14, 2015 Page 1 of 6
