https://twitter.com/naep_nces

Do U.S. students have the & skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the 21st century? Find out in the newly released NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy Report Card.

Students who are literate in technology and engineering can use, understand, and evaluate technology. They can understand the technological principles and strategies that are needed to develop solutions and achieve goals. This includes students being able to use various technologies to communicate and collaborate.

Technology and engineering skills are an integral part of students’ everyday lives and will be critically important as they continue their educations and enter the workforce. Since technology is also integrated into other subjects, students require strong skills in this area to excel in all aspects of their coursework.

About the assessment
The computer-based assessment, administered to eighth grade public school students nationwide, asks students to complete collaborative, multimedia tasks and solve practical problems based in real-world contexts. It focuses on three major areas:

Technology & Society
Students’ understanding of the effects of technology on society and the natural world, which equips them to grapple with related ethical questions.

Design & Systems
Students’ understanding of engineering design processes, including basic aspects of managing everyday technology such as maintenance and troubleshooting.

Information & Communication Technology
Students’ ability to use technologies for accessing, creating, and communicating information, as well as facilitating creative expression.

The Man Who Saw Trump Coming a Century Ago

Thorstein Veblen, the greatest American thinker you probably never heard of, predicted the rise of a Gilded Business Man and the demolition of democracy.

The Man Who Saw Trump Coming a Century Ago

Veblen got his initial job, teaching political economy at a salary of $520 a year, in 1890 when the University of Chicago first opened its doors. Back in the days before SATs and admissions scandals, that school was founded and funded by John D. Rockefeller, the classic robber baron of Standard Oil. (Think of him as the Mark Zuckerberg of his day.)

from the beginning, Thorstein Veblen was there, prepared to focus his mind on Rockefeller and his cronies, the cream of the upper class and the most ruthless profiteers behind that Gilded Age. He was already asking questions that deserve to be raised again in the 1% world of 2019. How had such a conspicuous lordly class developed in America? What purpose did it serve? What did the members of the leisure class actually do with their time and money? And why did so many of the ruthlessly over-worked, under-paid lower classes tolerate such a peculiar, lopsided social arrangement in which they were so clearly the losers?
