The study of Technology can be most plainly described as the study of our “Designed World”. By that we mean the things in our environment that have been created by people. These things allow humans to be more productive; extending one's capabilities and satisfying needs and wants. Things such as exercise equipment, surgical tools, electronic fuel injection, hydroponics gardening, new drugs and even Gatorade, are the result of the application of The Design and Problem Solving Process. This also requires the application of knowledge from other areas such as Math and Science. Courses in Technology Education afford students the opportunity to increase their level of technological literacy. Students will better understand how to live and work with current and future technologies and understand the careers available to them in an ever-changing workplace.
