The pedagogical ecology of technology education: An agenda for future research and development

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

In order to explore pedagogy for future technology education, this chapter weighs up the need to consider what we already know about effective pedagogical models for technology education with what might be required of technology education in the future, and how these goals might be addressed. The social, economic and cultural realities of this century are undergoing such radical changes, including technological transformations, that a thorough revision of teaching and pedagogical approaches is necessitated. The agenda for the future should include a great deal of research and development into addressing questions related to individual, group and social diversity. To pursue this agenda, a research and development pedagogical ecology framework is proposed that includes conceptual, contextual, pedagogical resources, and planning and implementation dimensions.
