Why do we need Standards for Technology Education: Content for the Study of Technology (Technology Content Standards) ? What is technological literacy? What key terms should I know and use? Who will benefit from Technology Content Standards? What should I be doing now in preparation for the release of Technology Content Standards?
These are just a few of the topics addressed in the PowerPoint presentations created by TfAAP. These presentations have been used at state, regional, and national conferences to explain the process of developing Technology Content Standards. You may use them in your state, locality, or other educational settings as a means to inform others about Technology Content Standards and technological studies.
The presentations are saved as PowerPoint files, version 4.0. Remember, you must have a compatible version of PowerPoint to view each file.
