dc.description.abstract Over the last ten years a new industry has grown and developed as the world's technology became faster, more powerful and affordable. This industry is 3D Computer Animation. Whether you watch movies or television, read magazines or newspapers, it is a rare day when you do not see 3D computer images of one type or another. While post secondary institutions have recognized the need to offer training in this industry, the public school system has almost all but ignored it. The cost of developing 3D Computer Animation programs in schools is now at an affordable level. As more schools in Alberta start offering 3D Computer Animation as part of the Career and Technology Studies program concerns become evident. One concern is that there are few teachers who are trained in this area and the other concern is that the curriculum and credits for a program of this type is almost nonexistent. This project addresses these concerns. This document outlines objectives for teachers who wish to teach 3D Computer Animation and would like to know what skills need to be taught. Four proposed introductory courses for the Career and Technology Studies program are presented. The author intends to approach Alberta Learning with completed courses for their consideration and acceptance as official Career and Technology Studies courses. en
