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.

Educational institutions in which administrators, managers and teachers will be working in the late 1990's will be far different from those oftoday. Schools, which until recently were lagging behind in the implementation of information technology (IT) in their administration and management, are now attempting to close the gap. A massive and rapid computerization process in schools, school districts and throughout the other Ievels of the educational system, including universities, has made computers an integral part of the educational management scene. A computer on the desk of every educational management statT might become a reality in the near future. The term "IT" includes three main components: hardware, software - mainly management information systems (MIS)/decision support systems (DSS) and human factors. Presently, successful implementation depends on adequate software and on human factors. MIS/DSSs are being implemented with the aim of providing meaningful support for school employees in their daily activities, and to improve their performance, etfectiveness and efficiency. Much like at universities, usable and accessible school databases are being established, encompassing data on students, teachers, employees, classrooms, grade Ievels, courses, student achievements and behavior, school space, curriculum, finance, inventory, transportation, etc.

This book explores the underlying assumptions, beliefs, and values of prevailing theories, frameworks, models, and principles in digital technology education through the metaphysical lenses of ontology, epistemology, axiology, and methodology. By proposing meta-connective pedagogy that reflects the ecological, transformative nature of the digitally networked world, Dreamson repositions learners in the networked world for their authentic engagement. Covering key domains of digital technology education, this volume explores topics such as meta-connective learning; digital identity formation; emergent communities and co-laboured learning; interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary knowledge production; teacher attitudes towards the relationship between learning and technology; learner engagement and online interaction; transformative digital literacy; meta-analysis of technology integration frameworks; methodology for authentic digital engagement; and meta-connective ethics. Critical Understandings of Digital Technology in Education is the perfect resource for in-service and preservice teachers, as well as researchers and specialist teachers in technology and information and communication technology education fields who are looking to enhance their pedagogical understandings of digital technology.

In a country teeming with millions of illiterates any promise to hasten the eliminationof illiteracy through innovative tools will have an instant appeal. Instructional Technology holds out one such promise. It seeks to reinforce the attack on illiteracy, with the aid of radio, television, film, cassette, computer and satellite programmes. Apart from limited objective of improving the quality of teaching in the existing educational institutions, it proposes to make a dent into the vast area of darkness where facilities for learning do not exist. The crux of the problem lies int he application of instructional technology in the limited field of formal and non-formal education. It cannont be denied that instructional technology, as is bieng out, is capital-intensive appropriate indigenous technology.

The position of technology education in the school curriculum is a topic of continuous discussions. This book offers a number of research-based contributions to that discussion. A number of aspects have been identified that are related to the way technology education can be embedded in the curriculum: The historical development of the subject, its disciplinary character, its relation to other parts of the curriculum, and in particular with science and language education, the relation between the formal school curriculum and informal learning, forms of progression over the grades, and its contribution to citizenship, forms of literacy and ethics. The final chapter deals with specific issues for developing countries. The book can support decision making on the curriculum and the development of technology education as a part of that by providing theoretical and empirical insights on this topic.
