“To Engineer is Human”
If you’ve been following ITEEA’s STEL standards, you’ve probably noticed that The History of Technology is one of the new core disciplines, in addition to two other core disciplines that focus on the social context of technology. This STEMinar will introduce you to free resources from IEEE REACH, a resource program that includes everything required to incorporate and implement these new disciplines in your lesson plans. You will walk away with a complete toolkit that includes inquiry designed lesson plans, formative performance tasks, excerpted documents for students, hands-on activities, short engaging student videos, and primary source documents that are digitally linked to the archive where they are housed, i.e. the Library of Congress, a museum, etc. These multimedia, digital resources have been developed by the IEEE History Center, an operating unit of IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. As it is often shared by ITEEA, preparing students to be technologically and engineering literate requires an understanding of, not only what technology is, “but how technology has shaped society and in turn how society shapes it.” This is one STEMinar you will not want to miss!
IEEE REACH is a donor funded program of the IEEE Foundation.
Presenters: Michael N. Geselowitz and Kelly McKenna
