Gallup Polls

“What Americans Think About Technology”

Note: The ITEA-TfAAP webpages are intended to present the reader with an historical perspective of the project and the ground-breaking work it accomplished. The TfAAP web pages are archival and will not continue to be updated. After the TfAAP web pages were archived in January 2006, ITEA had a name change and became the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA). The name was not changed on these archival pages.

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.
