Project, Rationale and Structure provides a new vision for the study of technology. The document
defines technology and discusses the power and the promise of technology and the need for
technological literacy. It presents the Universals for the study of technology and describes how
technology should be integrated into the core of the curriculum from kindergarten through high
school and beyond. Finally, a challenge is made to all concerned to take action to establish technology education standards and make technological literacy an educational priority.
