The International Technology Education Association (ITEA) and its Technology for All Americans Project (TfAAP) recruited and prepared six educators* from across the country to assist regions, states, and localities in advancing technological literacy* standards-based reform*. Originally called Standards Specialists, this cadre of professionals remain available to conduct presentations and half-day, full-day, or multi-day workshops* on a cost-recovery basis that help participants:
Since the release of STL in 2000 how successful have you been with its implementation? If you are in need of assistance the presentations that follow may be of use. They provide a general overview of STL and offer implementation tips.
The Short Workshop is indicative of the material offered in a two to four hour Specialists workshop about the STL portion of the technological literacy standards (29 slides, 1.71 MB).
The Full-day Workshop is indicative of the material offered during a day long Specialists workshop about the STL portion of the technological literacy standards (68 slides, 1.75 MB).
Administration of the Curriculum & Standards Specialists was reassigned to the Center to Advance the Teaching of Technology and Science (CATTS), a division of ITEA, when TfAAP ended in October 2005. Current information about the program will remain available in the CATTS section of the ITEA web site.
TfAAP was initiated and administered by ITEA and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
