Standards for Technological Literacy: Past, Present, and Future
Dugger, William E., Jr; Moye, Johnny J.
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v77 n7 p8-12 Apr 2018
"Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL)" provides the content for what every technologically literate student should know and be able to do. It "defines what the study of technology in Grades K-12 should be, but it does not lay out a curriculum" (ITEA/ITEEA, 2000/2002/2007, p. 200). Curriculum includes the "structure, organization, balance, and presentation of the content to the student and provide[s] the plan followed by the teacher for instruction" (ITEA/ITEEA, 2003a, p. 15). Curriculum developers are encouraged to use STL as a roadmap to develop curriculum in an effort to develop technologically literate students. The focus of this article is on STL, specifically it's past, present, and future.
