Katsioloudis, Petros J.; Stefaniak, Jill E. – Journal of Technology Education, 2018
Results from a number of studies indicate that the use of drafting models can positively influence the spatial visualization ability for engineering technology students. However, additional variables such as light, temperature, motion and color can play an important role but research provides inconsistent results. Considering this, a set of 5…

Gorski, David E. – Journal of Technology Education, 2018
Technology and engineering education is filled with so many varied topics that it is almost impossible to break them into grade-level courses. As a result, courses are often mixed with all grade levels and all types of learners. On rare occasions, one course section pops into the schedule that is all one level. When this occurs, it may become…

Rose, Mary Annette; Carter, Vinson; Brown, Josh; Shumway, Steven – Journal of Technology Education, 2017
For over a century, teacher preparation programs (TPPs) have experienced peaks and valleys in preparing preservice teachers to deliver technology and engineering (TE) experiences in elementary classrooms. Calls to integrate engineering concepts into elementary education (Katehi, Pearson, & Feder, 2009; Kimmel, Carpinelli, Curr-Alexander, &…

Ames, Tyler; Reeve, Edward; Stewardson, Gary; Lott, Kimberly – Journal of Technology Education, 2017
As education seeks to mold itself to fit the demands of the 21st century, STEM education will continue to be an important consideration. The integrated and crosscutting nature of STEM is incorporated into the "Next Generation Science Standards" in which engineering design is raised to the same level as scientific inquiry and is expected…

Kelley, Todd; Sung, Euisuk – Journal of Technology Education, 2017
The introduction of engineering practices within the "Next Generation Science Standards" provides technology educators with opportunities to help STEM educators infuse engineering design within a core curriculum. The introduction of teaching engineering design in early elementary grades also provides opportunities to conduct research…

Hacker, Michael; Barak, Moshe – Journal of Technology Education, 2017
Engineering and technology education (ETE) are receiving increased attention as components of STEM education. Curriculum development should be informed by perceptions of academic engineering educators (AEEs) and classroom technology teachers (CTTs) as both groups educate students to succeed in the technological world. The purpose of this study was…

Strimel, Greg; Grubbs, Michael E. – Journal of Technology Education, 2016
As the presence of engineering content and practices increases in science education, the distinction between the two fields of science and technology education becomes even more vague than previously theorized. Furthermore, the addition of engineering to the title of the profession raises the question of the true aim of technology education. As a…
