Teaching Strategies in Technology Education.
Schwaller, Anthony E.
Teachers of technology education need to relate their teaching strategies to learning theory, student needs, and Bloom's taxonomy. In learning, students take in information and apply it to the real world through accommodation. Teaching strategies must allow for this process of accommodation. Student needs involve sustenance (physiological needs), influence (control over others), and self-extension (extending oneself beyond the present). If these needs are met, positive feelings will result. Bloom's taxonomy consists of the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains. Not only must the teacher address all three domains, but the higher levels within each domain as well. There are many teaching strategies available to the technical education teacher. The successful teacher will include as many as possible, selecting particular strategies based on the needs of the moment. (DC)
