Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy: The Role of Technology and Engineering in STEM Education—Keys to Success!

The Application to Present at ITEEA’s 84th Annual Conference in Orlando is now open!


Planning for ITEEA’s 2022 conference in Orlando is well underway! And while the 2021 Virtual Conference was a huge success, we hope to see all of you face-to-face in sunny Orlando, Florida next March!

ITEEA is now accepting Presenter Applications for the 2022 Conference. Applicants should align potential presentations with the conference theme, which focuses on the roadmap that Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy (STEL) provides for all educators. The conference theme highlights the importance of the three organizers within STEL—standards, practices, and contexts with connections and learning opportunities for all STEM learners!

Key Idea 1: Standards, Practices, and Contexts for PreK-12 and Teacher Preparation Programs

STEL provides the standards, practices, and contexts that define how all students can become technologically and engineering literate. Sessions in this Key Idea will provide examples of technology and engineering education as an integrative subject.

Key Idea 2: Creating Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Partnerships and Practices for Technology and Engineering Education

A strong focus on the essential knowledge within STEL is the focus of Key Idea 2. Educators provide inclusive, diverse learning opportunities across all grade levels. Sessions will provide learning opportunities for all ages and focus on inclusive, diverse lessons and learning.

Key Idea 3: Unpack, Implement, and Share STEL—Best Practices for All

STEL is a powerful, comprehensive tool for all educators. Key ideas in the area showcase lesson plans, activities, or research and findings that helps one use STEL to its fullest!

Key Idea 4: Connecting Technology and Engineering Education with Other Disciplines and the Workforce

STEL promotes an interdisciplinary approachto break down the silos between disciplines as well as to better collaborate with our workforce partners. This Key Idea is intended to promote ways to integrate and connect for student success and how to make those powerful, needed connections with workforce partners now and in the future.



The Application Deadline is June 30, 2021


And don't miss another unique opportunity to present to ITEEA attendees - at the ever-popular STEM Showcase. The ITEEA STEM Showcase is an exhibition of best practices in Integrative STEM Education. Showcasers include, but are not limited to, K-12 teachers, teacher educators, administrators, undergraduate and graduate students, and informal educators. The Showcase provides a forum to feature an idea, technique, or best practice related to learning activities, marketing material, career guidance, facility design, program design, assessment methods, equity, or classroom and laboratory management techniques. Showcasers are asked to illustrate a single element of technology and engineering teaching, STEAM Education, and/or Integrative STEM Education that they feel they have exemplified. Plan now to be a part of this unique and high-profile event by completing the application at the link below.




The Application Deadline is October 1, 2021
