Renewable Energy Technology
Daugherty, Michael K.; Carter, Vinson R.
Technology Teacher, v69 n5 p24-28 Feb 2010
In many ways the field of renewable energy technology is being introduced to a society that has little knowledge or background with anything beyond traditional exhaustible forms of energy and power. Dotson (2009) noted that the real challenge is to inform and educate the citizenry of the renewable energy potential through the development of educational standards and new curriculum. While the technology education profession has been proactive in the development and proliferation of content standards that emphasize the importance of students developing an understanding of and ability to select and use energy and power technologies, few suitable curriculum packages have been offered within the field. It is imperative that current students become aware of and familiar with emerging renewable energy technologies and how these technologies will continue to influence their lives in the 21st Century. This article presents an activity designed to provide technology education students with some exposure to the promise of wind energy and an introduction to the field of renewable energy.
