EDTS240 - Technologies Education

10 cp

This unit is designed to develop pre-service teachers' knowledge, understanding, processes and production skills in the planning of teaching and learning experiences in technologies for students from Foundation to Year 6, within the context of relevant technologies curriculum documents. More specifically, it will familiarise participants with both the Design and Technologies and the Digital Technologies components of the Australian Curriculum. This will include syllabus content and requirements, approaches to lesson planning and delivery, the use of project-based learning, and information and communication technology (ICT) for resource development. Emphasis is placed on the Technologies as an interdisciplinary way of knowing which emphasises the development of knowledge, understanding, processes and production involved in creative, innovative and sustainable design solutions. This unit is designed to develop pre-service teacher's awareness of the unique language, literacy, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities of the technologies to meet the learning needs of a diverse range of students.
