S tandards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL) has written statements about what is valued in the study of technology that can be used for judging quality. The document specifies what every student should know and be able to do in order to be technologically literate and offers criteria to judge progress toward a vision of technological literacy for all students. STL contains requirements for students to become technologically literate as a result of their education from kindergarten through Grade 12. Standards A Structure for the Content of Technology STL is not a curriculum. It provides the content, which is the material to be taught and learned in the curriculum. A curriculum provides the specific details of how the content (STL) is to be delivered, including organization, balance, and the various ways of presenting the content in the classroom, while standards describe what the content should be. Curriculum developers, teachers, and others should use STL as a guide for developing appropriate curricula, but the standards do not specify what should go on in the classroom. 19
