The History and Philosophy of Technology Education - "Historical Reader"
 

A class project by Dr. William Waite's TED 502 Graduate Class, Fall 2003 (orange table); and TED 531 Class (blue table), Fall 2005
SUNY at Oswego
Department of Technology

The students in class all agreed to submit web documents that could become a "reader" for others.  The target audiences are graduate students and technology teachers sharing an interest in Technology Education and its place in American schools.  The topics are in somewhat of a chronological order.  There has been no significant books in this field for over 20 years, so it is hoped that this project will serve to fill that void.

The papers are available by linking at the title.
