New Technology/space Curricula to Be Revealed


Meade, Shelli, Technology and Children


New, standards-based curricula for technological literacy that focuses on the theme of space exploration will be revealed at the International Technology Education Association (ITEA) Annual Conference in Baltimore, March 23-25, 2006.

Krista Jones (Utah) authored the elementary school curricula. Dan Engstrom (Pennsylvania) is the middle school author, and Ken Smith (Maryland) is the high school author. All three authors have substantial experience with curriculum development and drew heavily upon both the technological literacy standards (ITEA, 2000/2002; 2003) and concentrated NASA site visits arranged for this express purpose. Thus, the new curricula will be contemporary, hands-on, and provide a real-world perspective of today's era of space exploration.

Furthermore, the authors were steeped in the processes and materials provided in the Addenda to the Technological Literacy Standards Series. They drew heavily upon these addenda, and as a result, the new Human Exploration curricula serve as exemplary models of the addenda series in action. …
