Abstract

Much has been accomplished over the last three decades or so in terms of technology education becoming established as a distinct discipline both in school and research communities. However, on-going innovation is needed if effective technology education practice is to reach its potential as a key vehicle for equipping students to make responsible contributions in the global society of the knowledge age. This book introduces several frameworks that can be used to guide decision-making in the on-going development of technology education, and will, we hope, contribute usefully to the debate.
