Overview

Issues in Design and Technology Teaching by Bob Barnes

Issues in Design and Technology Teaching identifies and examines the important concerns in this subject, seeking to challenge preconceptions and stimulate debate about this relative newcomer to the National Curriculum. Key areas addressed are:

  • Issues of Definition: getting to the roots of the concept of design and its educational value
  • Issues in the Classroom: the role and implementation of new technologies, and issues involved in planning and assessment
  • Issues in the School Context: gender as a concern in Design and Technology, with an examination of boys' performance in this area
  • Issues Beyond the School: ethics, values and attitudes in Design and Technology, and a discussion of the benefits of partnerships with industry.

Issues in Design and Technology Teaching provides support for student teachers and NQTs in primary and secondary schools, helping them to reach informed judgements about the subject they are teaching.
