Program overview

The components making up this course can be categorized under the following headings: 1. Engineering Sciences and Visual Communication conceptual knowledge – Resistant materials, Electrical and Electronic Systems and Control and, Graphics This category provides the main space and time for developing knowledge about manufacturing processes, processes that control a technological function, and processes that are highly dependent on competency in a visual language rather than only a verbal or symbolic one. 2. Technological procedural knowledge (laboratory/workshop practice). This category provides the time and resources to support the engineering sciences mentioned in point 1. This category, together with the design category in point 3, provides the main channel for "doing technology". 3. Design principles and processes (conceptual and procedural knowledge). This category provides the main space for developing designerly ways of knowing and doing. It is one cross-curricular theme which will link most of the work done under categories mentioned in points 1 and 2. 4. Mathematics This is another cross curricular theme which will link most of the work done under categories mentioned in points 1, 2 and 3. 5. Field visits This category provides the space and time for industrial experiences or participation in community experiences which involve technology education, for example a yearly Design and Technology Expo for schools, a robotics competition, a roaming technology popularization team etc. 6. Technology studies. This provides the main space for reflective thought about technology and its possible social, political, cultural, environmental impact and how such issues may be permeated within a curriculum for school students, for the general public or other target audiences.
