The movement during the 1980s in the United States to implement technology education was preceded by three or more decades of discussion and work of concerned professionals. Some discussions, sometimes more appropriately called fights, argued whether the profession should teach about industry or technology. It was not until the 1980s that the profession seriously considered technology as its content base. At the same time national attention was focused upon the quality of education. Several national boards and commissions, responding to the need for such quality, considered technology, for the first time, as an essential part of the curriculum. (1) (2) (3) Perhaps equally important, technology was considered as more than computers and computer literacy.
