Bartholomew, Scott R.; Zhang, Liwei – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Although there are over 320,000 health and fitness apps available on major app stores, there is scant evidence that they actually promote a healthier lifestyle, assist users in exercising, or promote weight loss. This article presents a lesson plan using an Arduino for integrating computational thinking and game design with middle school students…

Moye, Johnny J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Today's world is shaped by technology and products engineered to serve society's needs and wants. The knowledge and skills required to develop and use these products are changing at an exponential rate (NASE&M, 2017; NRC, 2011). In order to understand and meet future challenges, it is vital that the United States produce technology- and…

Love, Tyler S.; Bhatty, Abraham – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Within the past few years there has been an increasing emphasis on making computer science (CS) more accessible for all K-12 students. In 2013 there were 12 states that allowed CS courses to count towards high school graduation, and in 2018 that number had grown to 35 states plus the District of Columbia (Code.org, 2018). Due to the increasing…

Kruse, Jerrid; Wilcox, Jesse – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), with new emphasis on engineering, reflects broadening definitions of scientific and technological literacy. However, engaging in science and engineering practices is necessary, but insufficient, for developing technological literacy. Just as robust scientific literacy includes a deep understanding of the…

Cool, Nate; Strimel, Greg J.; Croly, Michael; Grubbs, Michael E. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
To be technologically and engineering literate, people should be able to "make" or produce quality solutions to engineering design challenges while recognizing and understanding how to avoid hazards in a broad array of situations when properly using tools, machines, and materials (Haynie, 2009; Gunter, 2007; ITEA/ITEEA, 2000/2002/2007).…
