Abstract

VisTE is a National Science Foundation funded project that promotes technological literacy by
attempting to link to the Standards for Technological Literacy (STL) through the study of visualization, science, and technology. Over a 3-year period, the VisTE project team has developed and piloted 12 units for technology education in grades 8 to 12. During the 2002–2003 school year, six VisTE teachers pilot tested the first four VisTE units. During the 2003–2004 school year, seven teachers were asked to pilot test the second four VisTE units and some teachers re-taught some of the first four VisTE units. During the 2004–2005 school year, the seven pilot teachers pilot tested all or a subset of the last four units. The purpose of this report is to provide a process and outcome evaluation for the last four VisTE units.
