Technology and Engineering Teacher
SCOPE, Study, Criteria, Organize, Predict, Evaluate, Design, Problem-Solving, Engineering
The purpose of this article is to help Technology and Engineering Educators scaffold engineering design and problem-solving experiences so that students taking technology and engineering courses will develop an improved ability to design. Technology and Engineering Education seems to increasingly focus on problem-solving, design, and engineering. Technology and Engineering Education is not the only discipline with this focus. The fact that both Science and Technology and Engineering Education are similarly focused on the teaching and learning of engineering begs the question of what separates technology and engineering educators from science educators in the teaching of engineering? Lewis (2004) cautioned that the introduction of engineering signaled the discipline turning away from more practical, blue-collar knowledge, towards white-collar academic traditions. Lewis (2004) highlighted John Dewey's argument that manual training was a gateway for students to integrate math and science.
