TfAAP Presentations

Pertaining to the Technological Literacy Standards and their Addenda

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 presentations that follow were created to promote understanding of the technological literacy standards* articulated in the publications entitled Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL) and Advancing Excellence in Technological Literacy: Student Assessment, Professional Development, and Program Standards (ATEL). Use of the presentations is encouraged. Credit should be given to the International Technology Education Association (ITEA) and its Technology for All Americans Project (TfAAP).
Warning: The titles of the presentations are linked to files in Microsoft PowerPoint® format. Unless your computer uses a Microsoft Windows operating system or you are using a Mac platform, you will be unable to open and view these files. If you are unfamiliar with the PowerPoint® format, please read Opening Files in Specialized Formats before clicking on the links.
