Abstract: This roundtable discussion will begin with a summary of technology initiatives across science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education during the past 30 years to present perspectives on the role of technology in STEM education. The most prominent perspectives describe technology as the following: 1) vocational education, industrial arts, and/or the product of engineering, 2) educational and/or instructional technology, 3) the tools and/or practices used by practitioners of science, mathematics, and/or engineering, and 4) computational thinking. We are exploring these perspectives for the purpose of creating an observation protocol that will illustrate how teachers situate technology in their STEM classrooms and engage students in technologically-enhanced activities and investigations. We will discuss implications for STEM education researchers, educators, and practitioners.
