Harding, Jan; Rennie, Leonie J.
This bulletin discusses the concept of technology and the nature of technology education in Australia, including: technological literacy, technological awareness, technological capability, and information technology. Recent curriculum developments in technology and what they mean for teachers' roles in mathematics and science are explored. In order to help teachers develop lessons that take into account students' views, three methods that teachers could use to find out what their students think about technology are explained. These are: writing an essay; responding to a survey; and drawing a picture. A reproducible copy of a technology questionnaire is included. (MKR)
