Technologies education for the primary years

Albion, Peter and Campbell, Coral and Jobling, Wendy (2018) Technologies education for the primary years. Cengage Learning Australia, South Melbourne, Australia. ISBN 9780170367684

Abstract

Technologies Education for the Primary Years explains what ‘technology’ really is, its role in human society and how it responds to different circumstances across history and geography. Students come to know that technology is both a distinct education area and a process that is embedded in many activities in other learning areas, rather than a product. Chapters discuss how this subject relates to other fields such as science and engineering, and the critical role that technologies education plays in preparing future generations of active, informed citizens. They also introduce key concepts and elements in teaching technologies to primary students, including: creativity and the design process; computational thinking; suitable pedagogical approaches; summative and formative assessment; safety; and how to carefully select and adapt appropriate resources to support effective learning.
