Abstract

Today, the integrative STEM initiative, which is at the center of the current paradigm shift in education, includes attempts to blend science, mathematics and engineering with technology education. Common considerations provide an opportunity to better define the role of technology within the framework of STEM education, but this has not yet been fully realized. Therefore, a lack of definition/role of technology in STEM education is quite noticeable and there exist different perspectives regarding this issue. This theoretical study explains the basic principles regarding the transdisciplinary role of the technology that is defined with certain limits, while discussing different ideas about the integration of science and technology in STEM education in the last 30 years in order to present a different perspective on the role of technology in STEM education.
