The International Technology Education Association (ITEA)/Gallup Polls
provide valuable, longitudinal data on “What Americans
think about technology.” The first Gallup Poll, conducted
in 2001, was commissioned by ITEA to find out how Americans
view technological literacy. The second ITEA/Gallup Poll survey
was conducted in 2004 to validate or question the findings
of the first. Funding for the second survey was provided by
the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration (NASA). The Gallup Polls were administered
through ITEA’s Technology for All Americans Project.
ITEA encourages additional research based on the 2001 and
2004 ITEA/Gallup Polls as well as future iterations.
