Sung, Euisuk – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Computational thinking has been popularized in the last decade, particularly with the emphasis on coding education in K-12 schools. The core idea of computational thinking has a close relationship with technology and engineering education (TEE). TEE has emphasized the use of computing skills to solve problems, and integrative STEM education…

Buelin, Jennifer; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C.; Kelly, Daniel P.; DeLuca, V. William – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Assessments are generally categorized as being either formative or summative. Summative assessment takes place periodically through the school term as well as at the end and typically takes the form of formal tests and high-stakes quizzes. Summative assessment tends to be used for purposes of assigning grades and for evaluating the effectiveness…

Hardy, Alison – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Design and technology (D&T) is taught in most primary (5-11 year old children) and secondary schools (11-16 year olds) in England. Seen by some as a relatively new subject (White, 2011), some of its origins lie in craft tradition and domestic skills. This is partly reflected in classroom activities where children design and make, usually in…

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…

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…
