Your Feedback is Requested
Niall Dinning, National Co-ordinator of Technology Education, MOE, today shared the latest release of the revised and updated Technology learning objectives on the NZACDITT mailing list, with a request for feedback from the DT teaching community – STKS+Objectives+(Updated+May+2011)+V2;
..This is being developed as a part of the Technology Teaching and Learning Guide process. This is the first airing of the updated objectives with a wide group of teachers – the rationale for the changes is included in the document.
We do know that the indicators need a great deal of work. They are simply the ones from the current Body of Knowledge to show a more complete picture of the proposed changes to the objectives.
I would value any feedback on the objectives. I’m happy to post the draft of the revised indicators when they are available too.
