Kelley, Todd R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
Teaching students the design process and providing opportunities for design is at the core of engineering/technology education. The design process is a key feature of technological literacy, and design is the most represented element within "Standards for Technological Literacy" (ITEA/ITEEA 2000, 2002/2007; Lewis, 2005; Wicklein, 2006).…

Weidman, Justin; Wright, Geoffrey – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Construction Education has been dwindling in K-12 classrooms for the past 20 years (Frazier, 2015; Chini, 1999; Jones, 1990). This has led to enrollment issues and professional shortages in the construction industry (Bigelow, 2015). Couple these facts with the call for STEM majors (Painter, 2012), and there is a noteworthy opportunity: combine…

Grubbs, Michael E.; Strimel, Greg J.; Huffman, Tanner – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Interest in engineering at the P-12 level has increased in recent years, largely in response to STEM educational reform. Despite greater attention to the value, importance, and use of engineering for teaching and learning, the educational community has engaged minimally in its deliberate and coherent study. Specifically, few efforts have been…

Wells, John G. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
The PIRPOSAL model is both a conceptual and pedagogical framework intended for use as a pragmatic guide to classroom implementation of Integrative STEM Education. Designerly questioning prompted by a "need to know" serves as the basis for transitioning student designers within and among multiple phases while they progress toward an…

Moye, Johnny J.; Jones, Virginia R.; Dugger, William E., Jr. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2015
The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA [formerly ITEA]) has tracked the status of technology (and engineering) education in four previous studies (Newberry 2001; Meade & Dugger 2004; Dugger 2007; and Moye, Dugger, & Starkweather 2012). The purpose of this continuing study has been to determine the health…

White, David W. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2013
In April of 2010, the author was approached to write a proposal that would provide grant money for a summer program to take place at the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University's Developmental Research School (FAMU DRS). The FAMU DRS functions as a normal K-12 school; however, it is administered by the Florida A&M University College of…

Hughes, Bill – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2013
A low-cost and portable colorimeter kit has been designed and developed as an educational tool at Penn State University by Dr. Daniel Sykes for K-12 schools' integrated STEM learning. This scientific instrument allows students to learn how scientists utilize light as a means to study the chemical and physical properties of materials with an…

Brown, Josh; Brown, Ryan; Merrill, Chris – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2012
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) teachers teach multiple concepts that lend themselves to possible collaboration on a daily basis. Much like Metz's (2009) insightful discussion about the importance of science educators creating partnerships in the community "outside the school walls," integrative STEM teaching also requires…
