Hartell, Eva – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), adopted by the United Nations in 2003, is one example where safety has served as a universal language. GHS has helped countries provide uniform chemical labels and safety data sheets (SDS). It also provided a series of chemical hazard pictograms that are now…

Segedin, Laura; Fahrer, Nolan; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C.; Kelly, Daniel P.; DeLuca, V. William – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Knowing as much as possible about a student's needs, preexisting knowledge, and interests is just as important as knowing the curriculum content. An effective teacher must possess content mastery in order to be able to link course content skills to show workplace relevance. In addition, teachers should adapt and develop instruction according to…

Corkins, Chelsea; Cerv, Sara – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
While some might argue that lessons such as this cater towards nonformal education, teachers should not be deterred from integrating these lessons into their formal classrooms. Nonformal lesson plans--including their structures and techniques--can and should be integrated into formal classroom settings. Many nonformal activities are easy to…

Jones, Matthew; Bartholomew, Scott R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
One effort to reducing air pollution and global warming in recent years has centered on the replacement of fossil-fuel-burning vehicles with alternative energy options such as electric-powered transportation. In fact, electric vehicle technology is one of the fastest-growing, and ever-evolving, sectors of the energy industry (TR Fastenings, 2019).…

Hutton, Carrie – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
It is no secret that particular populations of Americans, specifically minorities, women, and students from high-poverty schools and districts, are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) jobs (Presidents' Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, 2010). In the 21st century, technology drives innovation…

Wu-Rorrer, Ray – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Creating strong community collaborations is a cornerstone in the success of career and technical education programs. Developing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) programs for middle school students using community collaborations can be challenging. This article presents innovative strategies being successfully implemented in…

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…

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…

Tan, Verily; Nicholas, Celeste; Scribner, J. Adam; Francis, Dionne Cross – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
With the introduction of "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS"), teachers have been called to find meaningful and engaging ways to teach science content while incorporating engineering practices and, to a lesser extent, computing and computational thinking. The task becomes even more complex when they also have to…

Gill, Melvin; Koperski, Kevin; Love, Tyler S.; Roy, Ken R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
At the start of each academic year, it is critical that school systems have developed a plan regarding how safety is to be enforced within their Technology and Engineering (T&E) education departments. This plan should focus on a uniform way to approach safety across all T&E courses and help reduce the liability of the school district,…

Lari, Pooneh; Rose, Annette; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C.; Kelly, Daniel P.; DeLuca, V. William – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Action research is a cyclical research process that may be used to improve instructional practice, assessment tools, and student outcomes. Action research always focuses on local problems and takes place in the natural setting of a classroom, laboratory, or school. Unlike traditional research, action researchers are primarily "committed to…
