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…

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…

Tan, Verily; Nicholas, Celeste; Scribner, J. Adam; Francis, Dionne Cross – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
With the introduction of "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS"), teachers have been called to find meaningful and engaging ways to teach science content while incorporating engineering practices and, to a lesser extent, computing and computational thinking. The task becomes even more complex when they also have to…

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…

Lari, Pooneh; Rose, Annette; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C.; Kelly, Daniel P.; DeLuca, V. William – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Action research is a cyclical research process that may be used to improve instructional practice, assessment tools, and student outcomes. Action research always focuses on local problems and takes place in the natural setting of a classroom, laboratory, or school. Unlike traditional research, action researchers are primarily "committed to…

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…

Childress, Vincent W. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Humans have become the most dominant animal on the planet. They have adaptations providing advantages over other animals. They have even out competed other species in their own genus. Humans have opposable forefingers and thumbs for superior dexterity, very large brains for intelligence, walk upright with bipedal locomotion to cover distances more…

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,…

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…

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…

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…
