& Standards Specialists
Assistance in Advancing Standards-Based Reform
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) and its Technology for
All Americans Project (TfAAP) recruited and prepared six educators*
from across the country to assist regions, states, and localities
in advancing technological literacy* standards-based
reform*. Originally called Standards Specialists, this cadre
of professionals remain available to conduct presentations and
half-day, full-day, or multi-day workshops* on a cost-recovery
basis that help participants:
- Become familiar with the set of 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 Standard (AETL).
- Learn how to interpret and implementt* the standards effectively.
- Learn how implementation of the standards influences participants'
- Experience and model* practices demonstrating the applications
of STL and AETL.
- Begin to explore and align content,* student assessment,*
professional development,* and programs* with STL
Since the release of STL
in 2000 how successful have you been with its implementation? If you are
in need of assistance the presentations that follow may be of use. They
provide a general overview of STL
and offer implementation tips.

The Short Workshop
is indicative of the material offered in a two to four hour Specialists
workshop about the STL portion
of the technological literacy standards (29 slides, 1.71 MB).
The Full-day Workshop
is indicative of the material offered during a day long Specialists workshop
about the STL portion of the
technological literacy standards (68 slides, 1.75 MB).
Administration of the Curriculum
& Standards Specialists was reassigned to the Center to Advance
the Teaching of Technology and Science (CATTS), a division of ITEA, when
TfAAP ended in October 2005. Current information about the program will
remain available in the CATTS section of the ITEA web site.
TfAAP was initiated and administered by ITEA and funded by the National
Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
