Abstract: Today, school districts continually struggle with the following questions pertaining to career and technical education programs: How does career and technical education fit the secondary curriculum? What is the magic mixture of knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to ensure that American students have the competitive edge in the workplace? How should school districts train teachers of career and technical education to teach in the information age? How will the efficacy of technology implementation in career and technical education be measured? What trends should drive changes in career and technical education? The authors state that as we move deeper into the information age, we must seek to resolve these issues. This article addresses each of these concerns by exploring the use of technology in the secondary career and technical education classroom.
