Gill, Melvin; Love, Tyler S. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
Laser engravers/cutters have found their way into many technology and engineering (T&E) education laboratories. Their use can range from from cutting balsa wood truss designs to embossing a decorative logo on a student's project, and the range of materials can be almost as broad. While their capabilities can be virtually endless and the…

Warner, Scott A.; Shearer, Korbin L.; Heidt, Garreth; Shoemaker, Korbin – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
For as long as the profession of technology and engineering education (TEE) has existed (the addition of engineering to the professional title marks the official beginning of the profession, and that occurred in 2010), there has been a struggle. Arguably, this struggle's roots go back to the beginning of public education in the U.S. The struggle,…

Grannetino, Joshua – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
Creating a community rather than an institution is a goal that all educators should strive to meet. To do this, school districts try to unify their student bodies by bringing attention to an obstacle too many children face--bullying. In the Technology and Education (TE) classroom, topics involving bullying can be difficult to include in everyday…

Preble, Brian C. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
When individuals discuss the rapid spread and the ease in which the coronavirus (COVID 19) became a pandemic, they often overlook the role of technology. While the masses, politicians, health officials, and the media focus on social distancing and limiting human interaction, the truth remains that transportation technologies played a central role…

Walls, William; Mentzer, Nathan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
As the field evolves over time, shifting from Industrial Arts, to Technology Education, to Engineering and Technology Education (ETE), so too does what teachers teach, how they teach, and the projects that they use. Projects that worked 10 years ago might not hold up today and, as reflective practitioners, they need to be able to align the current…

Reed, Philip A.; Ferguson, M. Kathleen – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
Tremendous teacher shortages and shifts in the preparation of technology and engineering (T&E) teachers have been occurring for some time (Litowitz, 2014; Moye, 2009; Volk, 1997, 2019). The training and certification of these teachers is extremely varied since each state certifies T&E teachers independently and most states offer several…

Hobbs, Elizabeth; Schisler, Laura; Pressley, Hugh; Smith, Walter – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2021
Picture students huddled around a 3D printer in a middle school classroom. They gaze at the object being printed, and exclamations of, "Where is that flag from?" "What does that symbol mean?" and "Oh; I didn't think of that!" can be heard. These examples of observation, curiosity, and critical thinking are the elusive…
