Loveland, Thomas; Love, Tyler S.; Wilkerson, Trena; Simmons, Patricia – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
In 1981, twenty-one industrial arts educators convened at Jackson's Mill, WV to develop an agreed-upon rationale and direction for the future of industrial arts. However, the route to achieve this goal was not as clear, as they had to "live the challenge of inquiry, assimilation, compromise, and consensus" (Snyder & Hales, 1981, p.…

Dugger, William E., Jr; Moye, Johnny J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
"Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL)" provides the content for what every technologically literate student should know and be able to do. It "defines what the study of technology in Grades K-12 should be, but it does not lay out a curriculum" (ITEA/ITEEA, 2000/2002/2007, p. 200).…
