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…

Love, Tyler S.; Roy, Ken R. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Field trips offer inspiring opportunities for students to see theory in practice and participate in student organization competitions. They also include increased hazards and consequential risks that require special attention to safety planning and supervision. Teachers must be cognizant about strategies to mitigate these risks prior to planning a…

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…

Euefueno, William D. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Project-/Problem-Based Learning (PBL) creates dynamic learning environments, incorporates various stimuli, allows learners to gain valuable experiences that extend to real-world applicability, and should be considered as a primary delivery method in STEM classes. The application and benefits of PBL in STEM classes are limitless. Students learn…

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…

Walton, Matthew; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Clark, Aaron C.; Kelly, Daniel P.; DeLuca, V. William – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
A classroom culture that features clear procedures will produce a safe learning environment for students. By establishing a class with clear procedures and effectively managing the learning environment, an educator can reduce discipline issues (Erdogan, Kursun, Tan Sisman, et al., 2010). A well-managed class will allow maximum instruction to take…

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…
