A Perspective of Technology Education in Taiwan, Republic of China.
Lee, Lung-Sheng Steven
This document is an overview of the status and problems of secondary technology education as it is now implemented in Taiwan. The first section describes the country and gives statistics on the national population and on the school population. The second section describes the technology curriculum as one in transition, with its focus changing from traditional industrial arts to contemporary technology education. Two tables provide summaries of the objectives and content of junior-high and senior-high industrial arts curriculum. The third section identifies problems that afflict industrial arts education in Taiwan--industrial arts is considered a subordinate subject, the public's perceptions are not aligned with what the field is, some drawbacks exist in the promulgation system of the curriculum standards, and much teaching deviates from the curriculum standards. The fourth section cites the 1993 extension of 9-year national education to 12 years as a good opportunity to rename industrial arts, develop a progressive philosophy, reconstruct the industrial arts curriculum, and win the public's support for industrial arts education. A summary, 11 references, 1 figure, and 2 tables conclude the document. (CML)
