Technology Education Symposium II. Program Theme: "Technological Literacy" (Menomonie, Wisconsin, May 1-2, 1981).
Smalley, Lee, Ed.
This monograph summarizes 21 presentations from a symposium whose theme was technological literacy--an understanding of the impact of technological descisions. These presentations are divided into five categories. The six presentations in the section, The Context of Technology Education, focus on technological literacy for living in today's society, the state of the art, technology as a case of misplaced abstraction, technological literacy and the female student, Jackson's Mill Industrial Arts Curriculum Theory, and choice of content for technology education. Topics of the four reports in the section, Industry Perspective, include robotics in industry, publisher's role in technological literacy, protection of industrial intellectual property (patents), and computer futures. Four papers in the section, Higher Education's Response, address human productive activity as a base for industrial arts, technology literacy for the nontechnologist, transportation technology in a technology-based industrial arts program, and promoting university-industry interaction. Five presentations in the section, Junior-Senior High School Exemplary Programs, concern implications of technology at the secondary level, articulation projects in program development, program development, Wild Rose High School technology education activities, and the Oak Grove Occupational Versatility program. The final section contains two closing addresses. (YLB)
