Internationalizing Technology Teaching with Blogs and Bananas
Davey, Sandy; Smith, Walter S.; Merrill, Chris
Technology Teacher, v69 n2 p22-26 Oct 2009
Educators can connect their students internationally in meaningful activities that address multiple teaching standards that are of concern to educators, parents, and the public worldwide. In this article, the authors describe a project wherein Australian Year 7 students made an "Edible Lunar Vehicle" (ELV) together with U.S. college students. The project focused on several key 6-8 benchmarks that are outlined in "Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL)." A table outlining the standards and benchmarks, and how each was addressed during this project is presented. (Contains 1 table.)
