Technological Literacy: Challenge for Teacher Education. Current Issues.
Yff, Joost; Butler, Michael J.
This publication considers the broad relationship between technology and education and what it implies for teacher training. Chapters discuss: (1) "Technological Literacy: A New Purpose of General Education;" (2) "The Character of Technological Literacy in General Education;" and (3) "Responses to the Need for Technological Literacy." As seen by the authors, the concept of technological literacy is broader than computer literacy (though the terms are often used interchangeably). Technological literacy is viewed as encompassing the capabilities and applications of the physical and natural sciences as they affect daily lives. A list of 22 references is included. (Authors/CJ)
