Autio, Ossi
Journal of Educational Technology, v2 n4 p13-18 Jan-Mar 2006
In Finland teaching of technology has traveled a long road during its 140-year history. It has gradually gone from the copying of the model series dating back to the 1860s to the building of computer controlled robots. Materials, techniques and technology have developed wildly but the pedagogic contents are restricted regrettably still often only around the product to be made. In technology education subject matter teaching model, which includes motivation, planning, working and evolution is striven for out of narrow minded object thinking and out of merely copying working. In this article subject matter teaching model is approached from the point of view of meaningful learning.
