Childress, Vincent W. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Technology is defined differently depending on one's point of view, but in "Standards for Technological Literacy," technology is defined as "Human innovation…the generation of knowledge and processes…that solve problems and extend human capabilities" (ITEA/ITEEA 2000/2002/2007). The processes associated with the development of…

Lipscomb, Kevin; Nato, Sandy; Ernst, Jeremy; Clark, Aaron; DeLuca, V. William; Kelly, Daniel – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
When students walk into a classroom, often the first question is, "What are we going to do today?" It is easy for educators to fall into the trap of using activities exclusively without considering the value or intent of the content. After all, the students are engaged, and if they are busy they must be learning. Simply being busy,…

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…

Hemming, James – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Teaching about drawbridges allows students to apply skills they have learned in math and science, while also being creative with design and the use of available materials. Students can be exposed to current and ancient designs. Today's drawbridges are beginning to look their age and are in need of updating and modernization. New bridges are being…

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…

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).…

Blue, Carl; Clark, Aaron; DeLuca, V. William; Kelly, Daniel – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
The changing demographics of U.S. society have prompted a focus on multiculturalism in today's classrooms. Educators and students are expected to be aware of the individual differences and characteristics that exist and use these attributes to everyone's advantage. This awareness begins with developing a broad understanding of the diverse…

Wright, Geoffrey A.; Jones, Matthew D. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
In this article, the authors outline an innovation curriculum that can be taught to elementary-aged students to expand their creative and innovative abilities and potential. The curriculum focuses on divergent and convergent thinking principles embedded in a hands-on learning pedagogy. The curriculum framework is based on an innovation model known…

Preble, Brian C. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
The two-stroke engine is an engineering marvel that has been incorporated into many aspects of modern-day life. While many seek to eliminate the two-stroke, others seek to revive this simple and effective power plant, aiming to make it more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient. If successful, improvements could be far-reaching and…

Welling, Jonathan; Wright, Geoffrey A. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
The paper rocket activity described in this article effectively teaches the engineering design process (EDP) by engaging students in a problem-based learning activity that encourages iterative design. For example, the first rockets the students build typically only fly between 30 and 100 feet. As students test and evaluate their rocket designs,…

Fujiwara, Yujiro – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
While many students may struggle to make sense of a mathematical formula and its practical implications, they can benefit greatly from an intuitive visualization and the engineering application of the topic. Effective STEM programs create clear connections at least with two subject areas, which translates into an enhanced student learning…

Moon, Cameron – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Baking a cake and programming have many attributes in common. Both baking and programming rely on a specific process to produce an expected outcome. A cake needs the right amount of each ingredient mixed in at the right time, the oven to be set at a specific temperature, and the cake to be baked for a specific length of time. Programs need to be…

Brown, Josh; Ernst, Jeremy; Clark, Aaron; DeLuca, V. William; Kelly Daniel – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Teachers must adapt their instruction to accommodate individual student disabilities, culture, and life experience to improve student learning in the classroom and to ensure that all students have the opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills. One method used is differentiated instruction. Differentiated instruction is based upon the idea…

Hacker, Michael; Cavanaugh, Sandra; DeHaan, Chris; Longware, Alta Jo; McGuire, Matt; Plummer, Matthew – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
This is the second of two articles about the National Science Foundation-funded Engineering for All (EfA) program which focuses on engineering as a potential social good, revisits major Technology and Engineering (T&E) themes (design, modeling, systems, resources, and human values) in two authentic social contexts (Food and Water), and uses…
