Technology and the Goals of Quality Education in Pennsylvania.
DeVore, Paul W.
This workshop presentation was developed to assist Pennsylvania industrial arts teachers in developing and teaching a curriculum in technology and technological literacy that meets the 12 Pennsylvania goals for attaining quality education that were established in 1979. Designed to explain the basis for the study of technology in public school technology programs, the presentation addresses the following topics: the impact of technology on society; the evolution of technological systems (production, transportation, and communication and information systems); the nature of technical means (knowledge of society, knowledge and technical means, and intellectual factors); the relationship between technology and science; the importance of technological literacy and the nature of technological systems; the need to study technology; and a curriculum structure for technology education.
