Defining a Process in a Creative and Co-Operative Technology Education Course
Autio, Ossi; Lavonen, Jari
Journal on School Educational Technology, v1 n2 p57-65 Sep-Nov 2005
Historically, technology educators have chosen the creation of products or projects as a means to teach technological concepts. Although it is true that technology is most commonly known by its products, in most educational situations technology is best described as a process. This paper describes a technology education course that promotes cooperative and creative problem-solving in primary school teacher education. The purpose of the course was to study creativity through analysing a special method for problem-solving and to create new pedagogical approaches in a learning environment, designed to promote active, co-operative, and problem-centred learning in technology education.
