Townsend, Scott; Lamar, Scott; Walach, Michael; Hodge, Connie – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2020
As science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) educators in a teacher education program, it was discovered that students have commonly limited preconceptions about technology. Based on classroom experiences, when students are challenged to make a quick list regarding their ideas and examples of technology, they usually focus on…

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…

Strimel, Greg J.; Morehouse, Abby; Bartholomew, Scott R.; Swift, Colin; Woessner, Jonathan – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Computational thinking is a problem-solving technique traditionally employed by computer scientists to develop computer applications. However, computational thinking practices are now believed to be applicable to other fields (Google for Education, 2018), specifically those related to engineering and technology. Accordingly, the Advancing…

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,…

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,…

Yoshikawa, Emily; Bartholomew, Scott R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
While the physical exercise of playing golf and the sheer enjoyment of the sport are both positive benefits, there are subtler opportunities for golf to be used in conjunction with other ideas for learning in K-12 education; the mechanics and details behind the sport, as well as the variety of clubs, courses, and swings are all potential…

Oehrli, Robbie – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Engineering design is a core component of technology and engineering education, and although not every student will become an engineer following high school, all students can profit from having engineering design experiences in high school (Apedoe, Reynolds, Ellefson, & Schunn, 2008; Denson & Lammi, 2014; Grubbs & Strimel, 2015;…

Moye, Johnny; Dugger, William E., Jr.; Starkweather, Kendall N. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
The purpose of the "Learn Better by Doing" study is to determine the extent to which U.S. public school students are doing hands-on activities in their classrooms. The study asks elementary and secondary (middle and high school) science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers to respond to 13 statements concerning…

Mitts, Charles R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) defines STEM as a new transdisciplinary subject in schools that integrates the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics into a single course of study. There are three major problems with this definition: There is no consensus in support of the ITEEA…

Ritz, John M. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2016
Radar is a technology that can be used to detect distant objects not visible to the human eye. A predecessor of radar, called the telemobiloscope, was first used to detect ships in the fog in 1904 off the German coast. Many scientists have worked on the development and refinement of radar (Hertz with electromagnetic waves; Popov with determining…
