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…

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,…

Love, Tyler S. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Technology and Engineering (T&E) education has traditionally included safety as a core component of its curriculum and instruction. Recommendations for safety instruction can be found in manual arts and industrial arts documents (Christy, 1938). Safety was emphasized across all grade levels, including the elementary grades (Miller & Boyd,…

Flowers, Jim – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
As a resource for manufacturing and construction, wood has much to offer: it is renewable, beautiful, locally obtainable, and rather easy to machine. In addition to building products out of wood, wood can be scientifically studied in the classroom and lab. In the age of STEM integration, technology and engineering teachers can teach wood science,…

Haney, Casey Lynn; Bartholomew, Scott; Hauck, Morgan; Price, Alexandria – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
While some promising efforts have recently been made to connect farmers with new practices of water conservation and assist in the optimization and use of resources, these efforts have not eliminated the need for additional research and sustainable practices in farming. This is especially true for crops such as rice that rely heavily on large…

Gill, Melvin – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Teachers transition into the real world of teaching through three stages: survival, mastery, and impact. New teachers are often at the survival stage, where their teaching concerns and plans focus on their own well-being more than the teaching tasks. The mastery stage focuses on how best to deliver instruction, and the impact stage is focused…

Bartholomew, Scott R.; Santana, Vanessa; Strimel, Greg J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Each year the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases an Annual Homeless Assessment Report that provides an estimate of the number of people experiencing homelessness (in sheltered and unsheltered situations). The report also provides estimates for specific homeless populations such as people experiencing chronic homelessness or…

Loveland, Thomas – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
In order to be prepared for future college or careers, 21st century students should have critical thinking in their arsenal of soft skills. Most teachers and schools feel that critical thinking skills are important to teach, but unfortunately they have a lack of understanding of what critical thinking is and what strategies are best utilized to…

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…

Love, Tyler S.; Bhatty, Abraham – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Within the past few years there has been an increasing emphasis on making computer science (CS) more accessible for all K-12 students. In 2013 there were 12 states that allowed CS courses to count towards high school graduation, and in 2018 that number had grown to 35 states plus the District of Columbia (Code.org, 2018). Due to the increasing…

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).…
