Engineering Encounters: Building Technological Literacy with Philosophy and Nature of Technology
Kruse, Jerrid; Wilcox, Jesse
Science and Children, v54 n7 p66-73 Mar 2017
This column presents ideas and techniques to enhance your science teaching. In this issue the authors discuss a design project they have used with upper elementary students (grades 4-6). They note ways to engage students in thinking philosophically about technology to meet engineering design outcomes in the "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS"). By asking students to reflect on their designs, they encourage deeper understanding of the [science and engineering practices] SEPs and deeper technological literacy.
