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).…

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…

Strimel, Greg J.; Grubbs, Michael E.; Wells, John G. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
The core subjects in P-12 education have a common key characteristic that makes them stable over time. That characteristic is a steady content. For example, in the sciences, the basics of biology remain the same--the cell is the basic building block around which organisms are defined, characterized, structured, etc. Similarly, the basics of…

Bartholomew, Scott R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Interest in Technology and Engineering Education (TEE) has recently revolved around working to define/redefine who we are, and who we are not; while others in TEE are not interested in a change of identity. An emphasis on design, design education, and design assessment may help clarify the discussion surrounding the future direction of TEE.…

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…

Moye, Johnny J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2013
Many vocational education, technology education, and now technology and engineering education leaders have made their mark on their profession. Their legacy is something that members of the profession enjoy and have a responsibility to continue and build upon. This is the third in a series of articles entitled The Legacy Project, which focuses on…

Moye, Johnny J.; Dugger, William E., Jr.; Starkweather, Kendall N. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2012
Technology and engineering education continues to evolve as it becomes more apparent that students need this information to become more successful in college and careers. The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA ) has tracked the status of technology education in the United States in three separate studies over the…

Eisenkraft, Arthur – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2011
Current instructional and learning models insist that when teachers prepare lessons for their technology and engineering classes, they must begin with a sense of what students already know. In preparing lessons, many teachers use their years of classroom experience as data to inform them about students' prior knowledge and about student…
