Technological Literacy IV: Proceedings of the National Technological Literacy Conference (4th, Arlington, Virginia, February 3-5, 1989).
Cheek, Dennis, W., Ed.; Waks, Leonard J., Ed.
The 52 papers presented reflect the diverse interests of the members of the National Association for Science, Technology and Society (NASTS). The first two papers deal with theoretical issues related to technological literacy (TL). Two papers discuss technology education at the elementary school level. Twelve papers cover various aspects of science-technology-society (STS) education at the middle and high school level, including project descriptions and ideas for addressing specific issues. Ten papers are on topics related to TL and STS at the college and university level. Some of these deal with TL as it relates to teacher education; others discuss the integration of technological issues into general education. The seven papers on general issues across educational levels take a broader perspective and examine the past and future of STS and TL programs. Technological literacy, writing, and the liberal arts is a clear area of interest, with seven papers focusing on this topic. Five papers deal with TL and minorities, four with TL and information services. The proceedings conclude with two papers on ethics, values, and technological literacy and one on the challenges facing STS education. (JB)
