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.…

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).…

Childress, Vincent W. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Humans have become the most dominant animal on the planet. They have adaptations providing advantages over other animals. They have even out competed other species in their own genus. Humans have opposable forefingers and thumbs for superior dexterity, very large brains for intelligence, walk upright with bipedal locomotion to cover distances more…

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…

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. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Technology and Engineering (T&E) education has traditionally included safety as a core component of its curriculum and instruction. Recommendations for safety instruction can be found in manual arts and industrial arts documents (Christy, 1938). Safety was emphasized across all grade levels, including the elementary grades (Miller & Boyd,…

Flowers, Jim – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
As a resource for manufacturing and construction, wood has much to offer: it is renewable, beautiful, locally obtainable, and rather easy to machine. In addition to building products out of wood, wood can be scientifically studied in the classroom and lab. In the age of STEM integration, technology and engineering teachers can teach wood science,…

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…

Reed, Philip A. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Technology Education as a discipline is at a historical point of two extremes. On one hand it is clear that what we do in technology education is highly valued; after all, imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery. The proliferation of "Makermania," technical competitions, engineering design in Next Generation Science…
