National Science Foundation Projects: Technological Literacy

Compiled by

Daniel L. Householder

April 2004

The National Science Foundation (NSF) portfolio addressing technological literacy includes initiatives supported by several programs. This listing includes projects identified by searching awards in these NSF programs: Advanced Technological Education; Bridges for Engineering Education; Centers for Learning and Teaching; Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics Scholarships; Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement; Distinguished Teaching Scholars; Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12 Education; Informal Science Education; Instructional Materials Development; Math and Science Partnership, National SMETE Digital Library; Research on Learning and Education; and Teacher Enhancement. In addition, projects supported by other NSF programs have been added to the listing at the recommendation of researchers in the field. NSF projects related to technological literacy include those concerned with standards in technology education; teacher professional development; learning and teaching, including the preparation of instructional materials; assessment; student recruitment and retention; fellowships and scholarships; digital libraries; technology activities in informal settings; as well as small numbers of projects in several other areas.

This listing has been compiled to provide an electronic file of current information on projects that may be of interest to educators, instructional designers, consultants, and researchers who are concerned with the development, delivery, and evaluation of instruction to develop technological literacy, particularly in grades K-12. Each section of this compilation begins with a listing of currently active projects. A selection of completed projects is included in those areas where NSF support for technological literacy has been in place for a number of years.

Each entry in this listing includes the NSF award number, funding program, project title, total grant amount, starting and ending dates, the name of the principal investigator (PI), the grantee institution, PI contact information, the project website; the descriptive abstract, relevant previous awards, and products developed by the project. The listings were submitted to PIs for verification, revision, and updating for this compilation.

Readers and researchers are encouraged to contact the principal investigators directly for detailed information about the activities and outcomes of their projects.

The compiler is solely responsible for this listing. The information included in this compilation does not represent the official position of the National Science Foundation. Updated information, corrections, and suggestions for improving the usefulness of the listing are invited. They may be submitted to the compiler at

Additional information on programs and projects may be accessed through the National Science Foundation website, Awards may be searched by program, state, institution, or funding year at The listing below includes all NSF programs represented by awards in the attached listing, as well as new programs that offer potential funding opportunities in technology education or technology teacher education. Current program solicitations, deadlines, and other program information may be obtained through the respective websites.

Advanced Technological Education Program

Integrating Low-Cost Virtual Reality into Design and Technical Graphics Curricula

NSF Award No. 0302832 (Advanced Technological Education Program)

$860,450 September 1, 2003 - July 31, 2006

Shana S-F Smith, Iowa State University

This project introduces low-cost virtual reality technology into design and technical graphics classrooms and laboratories, as well as developing instructional materials to enhance course delivery. Changing market needs and advances in technology, the focus of CAD technology education, and the shift from drafting to design, problem-solving, presentation, and communication point to the critical need to integrate virtual reality tools into the design and technical graphics curricula. The primary audiences for this project are students and faculty at all levels of design and technical graphics education and CAD technologists in industry. This project inspires the interests of high school students by providing outreach days and virtual reality experiences for students. The project, in collaboration with community college partners, promotes the advancement of their students and engages University students in enhanced learning opportunities that will better prepare them to contribute to the work force. The resulting instructional materials will be made available to graphics and design educators at other institutions through a project web site and by distributing a CD-ROM. Results will be disseminated through national conference presentations and publications. In addition, fifty community colleges will be selected and invited to use the instructional materials developed.
