Abstract

The Impact of Technology Education: International Insights is the third volume of international research prepared by the Center of Excellence for Technology Education (CETE). There are nine chapters of different research activities that attempt to substantiate the claim that technology education can be a powerful teaching and learning tool in preK–12 schools and postsecondary settings. The researchers assert an urgent need to expose students to technical subjects and realistic problem-solving as early and as often as possible. Although each chapter presents different kinds of research and insights on the impact of technology education, the call for a unified effort to support technology education is the central theme of these chapters.

This book informs us of successes achieved in developing technological literacies and reminds us of the work that needs to be continued to demonstrate the value of technology education. What follows is a summary of specific chapters in this book.
