Technology Education

Philosophy:

Vocational and Technology Education is the application of organized knowledge and problem-solving techniques. It consists of inventions and other creative developments for producing physical objects and performing services. Technology uses resources, tools, machines, processes and systems to satisfy the material needs and desires of people. It includes the process of design, engineering, invention, research, experimentation, development, production, and control. The development and application of technology have occurred primarily in industry, our major economic institution. Technology and industry have provided both benefits and problems for our society, culture, and environment. Future technological developments must maximize the benefits and minimize the problems. These are the insights that activities in Technology Education are intended to address.
