Rigler, Kenny – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
The first steps in the engineering design process are to identify and define the problem (Eide, Jenison, Mashaw, & Northup, 2001). The primary purpose of this article is to highlight the problem that has existed for the past three decades (a disconnect between industrial educators and proponents of technological literacy) and to make a…

Loveland, Thomas; Love, Tyler – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
As technology and engineering (T&E) education seeks to survive a shortage of teachers and funding, among other factors, it must proceed with caution. The field should remain true to its hands-on, design-based roots but must also provide rigorous instruction that applies STEM skills and situates it as a valuable stakeholder among the core…

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…

Love, Tyler S.; Ryan, Larry – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Crab cakes and football, that's what Maryland does!" (Abrams, Levy, Panay, & Dobkin, 2005). Although the Old Line State is notorious for harvesting delectable blue crabs, the movie "Wedding Crashers" failed to highlight something else Maryland does well: engineering design competitions. This article discusses how a multistate…

Loveland, Thomas R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Recent papers on career and college readiness have emphasized preparation of secondary students for either future college and/or career choices (Robles, 2012, Rateau, Kaufman & Cletzer, 2015). While technologies used in business change rapidly and make the teaching of job-specific skills somewhat impractical, the foundational skills needed for…

Moye, Johnny J.; Wescott, Jack W.; Smith, Donald F. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
This is the tenth in a series of articles entitled "The Legacy Project." The Legacy Project focuses on the lives and actions of leaders who have forged our profession into what it is today. Members of the profession owe a debt of gratitude to these leaders. One simple way to demonstrate that gratitude is to recognize these leaders and…

Deal, Walter F., III; Hsiung, Steve C. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Sensors of all kinds play significant roles in the way that we use and interact with technological devices today. Smartphones, household appliances, automobiles, and other products that we use every day incorporate many different kinds of sensors. While the sensors are hidden from view in the products, appliances, and tools that we use, they…

Kelley, Todd R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
As national STEM initiatives focus on engineering design as a STEM integrator, a more important concern for K-12 educators should be teaching design fundamentals and using these experiences to help students obtain STEM content knowledge. There appears however, to be little instruction and emphasis on building students' design-sketching skills in…

Kruse, Jerrid; Wilcox, Jesse – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), with new emphasis on engineering, reflects broadening definitions of scientific and technological literacy. However, engaging in science and engineering practices is necessary, but insufficient, for developing technological literacy. Just as robust scientific literacy includes a deep understanding of the…

Love, Tyler S.; Roy, Ken R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
"Safety Spotlight" encourages the submission of questions from Technology and Engineering (T&E) Educators, and this month's question involves the risks of placing hazardous equipment (e.g., 3D printer, laser cutter, CNC router, etc.) in a non-technology & engineering lab under the supervision of teachers not certified to teach…

Cool, Nate; Strimel, Greg J.; Croly, Michael; Grubbs, Michael E. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
To be technologically and engineering literate, people should be able to "make" or produce quality solutions to engineering design challenges while recognizing and understanding how to avoid hazards in a broad array of situations when properly using tools, machines, and materials (Haynie, 2009; Gunter, 2007; ITEA/ITEEA, 2000/2002/2007).…

Hughes, Bill; Mona, Lynn; Wilson, Greg; Seamans, Jeff; McAninch, Steve; Stout, Heath – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
A handful of technological episodes: fire, wheel and axle, Industrial Revolution, Faraday's discovery of electromagnetic induction, the transistor, and the digital age, have historically altered humanity. We are now witnessing/participating in the next transformational technology: 3D printing. Although dating back nearly 30 years, the technology…

Asunda, Paul A.; Mativo, John – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Part One of this article ("Technology and Engineering Teacher," 75(4), December/January, 2016) presented a process that science, math, engineering, and technology teachers could use to collaborate and design integrated STEM courses. A conceptual framework was discussed that could provide a premise that educators interested in delivery of…

Bartholomew, Scott R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Pokémon GO ranks as one of the most downloaded apps of all time. The app works by utilizing the GPS embedded in a user's phone to locate real-world locations. The phone screen shows the user's real-world location, and when moving about, he or she will encounter Pokémon that can be caught with a Pokéball (Pokémon, 2016). What does STEM Education…
