8.2 Technology Education, Engineering, and Design: All students will develop an understanding of the nature and impact of technology, engineering, technological design, and the designed world, as they relate to the individual, global society, and the environment.
Grades: PK-12
Strand D. Research and Information Fluency
Essential Questions
· How does technology extend human capabilities? What are the positive and negative consequences of technology? Should technologies that produce negative impact continue to be used?
· When are the most sophisticated tools required and when are the simplest tools best?
· Can a system continue to operate with a missing or malfunctioning component?
· Is it always beneficial to use the most economical material/materials for production of a technological product?


Enduring Understandings
· Technological outcomes have the potential for anticipated and unanticipated positive and negative results.
· The design process is fundamental to technology and engineering
· A system has interrelated components designed to collectively achieve a desired goal.
· All technological activities use resources that include tools/machines, materials, information, energy, capital, time and people.
