Florida Context

  • Technology Education is a critical need in the State of Florida

  • High demand for certified Technology Education teachers state-wide:

    • 160 new positions open each year according to Florida Dept of Labor study 2002-2020.

  • High demand in the Tampa Bay area: 10-20 new open positions per year in the surrounding five districts (Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Polk and Manatee).

Technology education l.jpg
Technology Education

  • Technology is the subject matter, while technology education is the means of delivery.

  • The study of technology includes both knowing and doing.

  • Development of technological literacy takes time and requires a consistent structure.
