There are three faces of Technology Education. What is meant by this? It means that more emphasis should be given to the students who take industrial technology education (ITE) classes at the high school level with less emphasis given to standards, objectives, or outcomes developed by national organizations. Viewed in this light, three different faces, or types of students, can be envisioned as being served by ITE programs. The first face seen is that of a young person wearing safety glasses, a hard hat, and with a pencil behind one ear. The second face is that of a young person wearing safety glasses who is holding an iPod listening to music. The third face is that of a young person wearing safety glasses who is operating a graphing calculator. The purpose of this paper is to identify the three faces of ITE, to show how current curriculums address the first and third faces, and to suggest how the second face should be supported.
