Technology Education-A Holistic Approach in a General Education Framework.
This paper discusses several important issues and concerns associated with the topic of technology education. These topics include: (1) the nature of technology education; (2) the technology and science argument; (3) technology education and general education; (4) technology as a holistic approach; and (5) technological literacy and general education. This discussion attempts to weave each of the above into a fabric for understanding, as well as practice for technology educators, as a needed component in general education. The discussion is based on the premise that there is a role for technology education in the general education framework and secondly, the vital role of technology education is establishing a holistic approach that provides a setting for the integration of the other general education subjects.
