Introducing Technology Education at the Elementary Level
McKnight, Sean
Tech Directions, v72 n3 p27-29 Oct 2012
Many school districts are seeing a need to introduce technology education to students at the elementary level. Pennsylvania's Penn Manor School District is one of them. Pennsylvania has updated science and technology standards for grades 3-8, and after several conversations the author had with elementary principals and the assistant superintendent in charge of elementary education, Pennmanor's Elementary Applied Engineering and Technology program came to be. Thinking that their experience might be of interest to other technology educators and administrators throughout the nation, the author shares some of what they have done.
