Denson, Cameron D.; Kelley, Todd R.; Wicklein, Robert C.
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v46 n1 p81-102 Spr 2009
This descriptive research study reported on Georgia's secondary level (grades 6-12) technology education programs capability to incorporate engineering concepts and/or engineering design into their curriculum. Participants were middle school and high school teachers in the state of Georgia who currently teach technology education. Participants completed a Likert-type online-survey which reported on technology education teacher's (a) current instructional practices to teach engineering-based instruction, (b) curricular value placed on engineering-based instruction, and (c) instructional needs to teach engineering-based topics. General demographic information was collected from all participants. The results from the study aided in informing the educational community on the perspective of the values, needs, and instructional practices associated with an engineering design focus for technology education. A summary of the five main recommendations are reported. (Contains 10 tables.)
