Technology Education at FAMU
The overarching goal for Technology Education is to make all citizens technologically literate. This can be accomplished through technology education alone, but also by integrating math, science and engineering principles into Technology Education programs. This is being done not only in the State of Florida, but nationally as well. The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiative is being researched at large research institutions throughout the nation. Additionally it is being utilized in the State of Florida. Technology Education Programs in the State of Florida fall under the STEM cluster.
The overarching goals of Technology Education in post-secondary schools are to produce certified Technology Education teachers that are equipped with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to be effective educators and leaders.
Students who graduate from the Florida A&M Technology Education Program will be creative problem-solvers, critical thinkers, knowledgeable in standards-based teaching, learning and assessment, and reflective practitioners that can not only train and educate students, but are lifelong learners as well.
