The inclusion of technology among the National Curriculum foundation subjects is an exciting , but at the same time somewhat daunting challenge for primary teachers. This series of case studies shows how real teachers across the primmary age range have put design and technology into practice as a focus for their topic work. Through these examples Margaret Rogers and Hind Makiya show what is meant by design and technology in the primary school and how problem solving activiies can be used to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum across several subjects. Useful appendices summarize the technology requirements of the National Curriculum and give extra guidance in common areas of difficulty such as the introduction of electricity and the use of electricity and the use of technical lego.

Teaching design and technology to young children has set new challenges for primary school managers, teachers, pupils and parents. Through the use of frank and detailed case studies, this book reveals the teaching aims and methods adopted by teachers, the issues they face in making their work effective, and the experiences of their pupils in learning design and technology. Extensive first hand evidence of classroon experience is provided by the teachers. The collection describes how action research can be done. It then provides practical examples of teachers introducing changes in the curriculum, in their teaching and in their use of evidence in monitoring teaching, as a result of this kind of research. Student teachers, teachers, parents and curriculum managers will all benefit from the insights offered by this wealth of practical accounts.

This is a challenging new book for primary teachers interested in developing their teaching of Design & Technology, subject leaders in D&T, and for student teachers choosing this as their specialty. It will also appeal to in-service providers and LEA advisory staff. Children's creativity, cultural development and citizenship are important but currently underdeveloped in primary education. This book uniquely focuses on how these aspects can be emphasized in the teaching of Design and Technology. The National Curriculum has the potential to bring creativity, cultural development and citizenship into the mainstream and the authors show the considerable extent to which D & T, integrated with other curriculum subjects, can contribute to realizing these goals. There are examples throughout of best current practice showing how such ideas have been implemented.

Design and Technology in Primary School Classrooms presents a comprehensive account of the development and nature of design and technology in the primary classroom from the modest beginnings in the 1980s to detailed implementation within the National Curriculum. It shows how the design/problem solving process and the knowledge, skills and understanding associated with design and technology can be developed by teachers who were previously unfamiliar with such activities. Case studies demonstrate the teaching strategies employed and illustrate in detail how children respond to design and technology in complex ways. The book combines original classroom research data wuth extensive illustrations, resource information and summaries of what design and technology in the National Curriculum involves.

This international handbook offers an in-depth study of the development of primary Technology (or Design and Technology) education worldwide. It is unique in that it focuses on the way in which the building blocks for this subject have been established– providing much needed research and information for those involved with secondary education and beyond to draw on. The inclusion of Technology education into primary curricula has gathered momentum for the last two decades as its importance and relevance to children’s lives has been realised by educators. This handbook offers a detailed insight into the many and varied ways in which countries have incorporated the subject into children’s primary school experiences, and issues that have arisen during its implementation. The authors all work in the field of primary technology education and have been actively involved in curriculum development and research in their own countries. The first part of the book is devoted to the introduction, the development and implementation of Technology education into the primary curricula of countries worldwide. Reasons for this movement, successes and barriers to development are discussed and speculation about the future of Technology education is reflected upon. The second part of the book relates to issues that have arisen as the subject has grown over the last twenty years, and consideration needs to be given to these if future successes are to be achieved. Classroom practice including designing and ICT, teacher education, enterprise, sustainability and indigenous technology are all reflected upon and support the notion of technology as a valued and valuable part of the primary curriculum This book should be of interest to undergraduate and graduate students, practitioners, researchers, curriculum developers, policy makers and professional development providers who are involved with, and have an interest in, primary technology education worldwide.

This is a textbook for use in technology teacher training and also a reference book for technology teachers. It will provide a foundation for new teachers entering the area of technology, and also the opportunity for practicing teachers to keep up to date with research informed ideas about teaching technology. Technology in the curriculum has continually faced a range of challenges throughout its history in many counties. Often the basis of the challenges is the result of a lack of understanding about good technology practice. It is hoped that this book can encourage excellent practice in technology teaching and so increase the number of schools positively engaged with technology. The chapter authors are internationally respected and experienced educators who have been able to draw on both their teaching experience and their research in order to discuss a range of aspects of teaching technology. The book has been developed with an international audience in mind. While authors are naturally most familiar with their own country, efforts have been made to generalize from the principles of sound theory and research based practice to maximize applicability to local contexts. John Williams is the Director of the Technology, Environmental, Mathematics and Science Education Research Centre at the University of Waikato in New Zealand. He has worked as a designer and builder, and began his career as a secondary school Manual Arts teacher. He has taught and studied in Australia and the USA, and in a number of African and Indian Ocean countries. He has published and presented widely, and enjoys fishing.
