Message from the President of TECC

Article excerpt

It is my pleasure to report on a successful ITEA annual conference. The TECC Special Interest Session presenters were very informative and well received.

TECC Leadership Award

The TECC Leadership Award is presented to educators who provide meaningful and sustained leadership to the Council. This year the TECC Leadership Award was presented to Dr. Sharon Brusic from Millersville University in Millersville, Pennsylvania. Dr. Brusic has been a guiding influence in bolstering the health and influence of TECC. She was a co-author for the Mission 21 materials, NASA-sponsored instructional materials that help teachers integrate technology education with elementary school instruction. She has been a professor at Virginia Tech and Millersville, where she established courses to teach technology education to elementary school majors. She has served in various positions on the Council on Technology Teacher Education (CTTE) while simultaneously serving as a vice president for TECC. CTTE recently recognized her as its Outstanding Teacher Educator. In her second term as TECC Vice President for Programs, Dr. Brusic was once again instrumental in developing a wonderful program for TECC at ITEA's annual conference. Finally, Dr. Brusic has served on the Technology and Children editorial review board, is a contributing author to T&C on a sustained basis, and has worked tirelessly to help elementary school teachers integrate technology education into their instruction. Thank you, Dr. Brusic.

TECC Mary Margaret Scobey Award

TECC presents the Mary Margaret Scobey Award to a person who has made tireless contributions to elementary school technology education in general. This year TECC presented the Mary Margaret Scobey Award to Dr. Ron Todd, a professor of Technology Education at The College of New Jersey. Over the years, Dr. Todd has led several National Science Foundation efforts at developing instructional materials for teaching technology education at the elementary school level, and he has always worked to disseminate his findings to the profession through publications and workshop presentations. Dr. Todd is publisher and has been a long contributing member of the TIES Magazine staff, and he has studied in detail how to teach engineering and technological problem solving to elementary school students.
