Technology Education is the area of education that specifically concerns the professional organization, the International Technology Education Association (ITEA), and for which ITEA’s Technology for All Americans Project (TfAAP) developed the set of technological literacy standards contained in Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL) and Advancing Excellence in Technological Literacy: Student Assessment, Professional Development, and Program Standard (STL).
Educational Technology focuses on the use of computers, information systems*, audiovisual equipment, and other media.
Additional clarification between technology education and educational technology is provided by the following article, which appeared in The Technology Teacher, a professional* journal* published by ITEA. The article is reproduced with permission from ITEA (PDF format, 5 pages, 131 KB).
For the convenience of those viewers who may be giving a presentation, the single slide in the 60 KB PowerPoint® file entitled Technology Education vs. Educational Technology reiterates the primary points made above.
