FileUnderstanding & Providing a Developmental Approach to Technology Education: A Handbook for Teachers
This technology education handbook is intended to act as an interim guide for teachers of technology education in all sectors of school. It is hoped that this will serve to guide the shaping of any teaching and learning provided by those who are active in providing a technology education programme. Findings indicate, in line with the hypothesis made in the UPDATE project, that issues related to gender in technology education are embedded at an early age and these should be addressed before, as well as in, the secondary sector.

FileLet's Invent More! Learning materials for Invention Clubs
The most difficult part of inventing is often finding a problem that needs to be solved. It feels like everything has already been invented, that the world is ready. The aim of this material is to provide teachers and club instructors with tools for creating an imaginative atmosphere and instructing an inventive club. In the “Inventing more” material we get to know the built environment by examining the basic structures in the environment. The knowledge and skills learned are applied in different problem solving exercises or solutions are developed based on own needs. School clubs provide time and opportunities to find problems, to examine them thoroughly and to come up with creative solutions.
