Technological and Engineering Literacy/Philosophy of Engineering
During the 2019 ASEE Annual Meeting and Exposition, several session papers, panels, and special presentations put forward that there are other components to technological and engineering literacy / philosophy of engineering. These suggest a broader understanding (and perhaps definition) of this literacy and philosophy than previously thought; that perhaps historical industrial, cultural, educational, and political perspectives have constrained our thinking, perspective, and philosophy. Thus, should we consider transforming the definition of technological literacy and engineering to place value and importance on ethno-technologies and cultures, scaffolding, social justice, language and dialects, design, and the internet of things; will this foster a more inclusive approach to understanding technological and engineering literacy / philosophy of engineering such that the importance of these can be extended beyond traditional (academic) audiences?
