This article is incomplete. This is because there is more to be said about technology education. (Consider: its current state, its potential future, its relationship with engineering and problem solving education, its history, etc.).(January 2018)
Technology education is the study of technology, in which students "learn about the processes and knowledge related to technology". As a field of study, it covers the human ability to shape and change the physical world to meet needs, by manipulating materials and tools with techniques.
Technology education should not be confused with educational technology. Educational technology focuses on a more narrow subset of technology use that revolves around the use of technology in and for education as opposed to technology education's focus on technology's use in general.
In 1980, through what was called the "Futuring Project", the name of "Industrial Arts Education" was changed to be "Technology Education" in New York State; the goal of this movement was to increase students' technological literacy.
