TfAAP Articles

Pertaining to the Work Accomplished by the Project

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 articles that follow were written in an effort to keep professionals informed about the Technology for All Americans Project (TfAAP) and its role in advancing the profession of technology education. All of the articles appeared in one of two International Technology Education Association (ITEA) publications entitled The Technology Teacher or Technology and Children. The articles have been reproduced with permission from ITEA.
Note that many of the terms used in the articles have strict definitions when applied to education in general and technology education in particular. Consult Glossary Terms for STL, ATEL, and Addenda for applicable definitions. It is available for download in printable PDF format on the Publications page.
Warning: The title portion of each article cited on this page is linked directly to a file in PDF format. If you are unfamiliar with the format, please read Opening Files in Specialized Formats before clicking on the links.

The Technology Teacher (TTT) is a professional journal published eight times a year: September, October, November, December/January, February, March, April, and May/June. A subscription is included in each ITEA membership or one may be purchased separately.
Technology and Children (T&C) is specifically directed towards elementary school educators. It is published four times per year: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Subscriptions to T&C may be purchased from ITEA.
To purchase a subscription to TTT and/or T&C, see Ordering Information.

TfAAP was initiated and administered by ITEA, and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The project ended in October 2005.
