Research in Technology Education: Back to the Future

The release of the Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (International Technology Education Association, 2000) has spawned significant activity and literature addressing needed research in technology education. For example, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) held a conference to look at what research would help to achieve the goal of technological literacy (Cajas, 2000). More recently, the National Research Council (2002) released a framework outlining three areas of standards-based research for mathematics, science and technology education. The three areas of curriculum, teacher development, and assessment and accountability reflect previous standards work in mathematics and science as well as the third phase of the Technology for All Americans (TFAA) project.
