Technology education in Australia: A case of some good news but some serious challenges ahead
MetadataShow full item record
In this chapter we attempt to do three things. Firstly, we provide a brief historical account of the development of education in general and technology education in particular in Australia as a context for the rest of the chapter. Secondly, we provide an analysis of the current position in terms of:the development of the National Technologies curriculum; implementation of the curriculum in both primary (elementary) and high schools; the current and possible future role of the national professional association; teacher education; and research. Finally, we attempt to draw together some themes to characterise the current position and provide pointers to future developments.
