What steps and classes does it take to be a technology teacher?
I want to be a tecnology teacher when I grow up so I want to know what steps and classes it takes. #technology #teacher #technology-education #stem
In today's parlance, technology is a vast ocean. This has a great advantage : you can pick and choose whatever you want. So, you will need to sit down and write all the subjects that you love and then see how you can become a technology teacher in a particular field. For instance:
- If you are good in Mathematics, you can learn algorithms quickly and subsequently explore opportunities in computer science/data science.
- If you are more of a logical person, then coding/programming can be your forte.
- If you are skilled in drawing/artistry, then you can explore fields like mechanical engineering and vlsi/chip design.
Essentially, it all depends on your strengths and passion.
All the Best!

Rafael A.’s Answer
It all depends on what type of technology you want to teach in.
If you are looking to teach using certain software applications, then you will need to take courses geared towards that software.
If you want t code, then select a coding language or two that will allow you to teach coding for those interested.
If you are looking at engineering technology, then you will need to get a degree in engineering.
The question is really what technology do I enjoy the most and will love to teach others on how to use it? Once you get that part of the question answered then you will be on your way.
