  2. 2.   What is Technology?  The Technology Curriculum  The Three Strands Of Technology  Teaching Technology To Children. Where are we heading?
  3. 3.   STRAND A=KNOW HOW=The practical part of technology the doing and making.  STRAND B=KNOW THAT=The skills and terminology required for technology in knowing what methods to use and when.  STRAND C=KNOW WHY=The history, background, research and impact of technology in our society and on us. An Overview: Page 1/2
  4. 4.   To clearly define what Technology is and what each strand in the curriculum is about so we can teach and explain this to children. LEARNING INTENTION ONE
  5. 5.  How TECHNOLOGY has affected our lives?
  6. 6.   To understand what the nature of technology means in the New Zealand curriculum. LEARNING INTENTION TWO
  7. 7.   To develop a range of teaching strategies at various levels within the nature of technology strand. LEARNING INTENTION THREE
  8. 8.   Use the sheet on pages three-six to fill out useful activities and teaching tips that you pick up during our sessions on Technology.  Remember while all the activities are linked to technology you can also use them in other curriculum areas. TEACHING STRATEGIES TRACKING SHEET
  9. 9.   On the large sheet provided use the post it notes to record what you are wondering about Technology.  On the second sheet provided use the post it notes to record what you think you know about Technology.  Sign your name at the bottom of the post it notes. WONDERBOARD
  10. 10.   What is the wonder board activity an example of?  Why did I get you to write your names down?  What could a teacher do with this information? THINK ABOUT THIS…
  11. 11.  TECHNOLOGY: You will need it…
  12. 12.   On page seven record your own definition of what you think Technology is and what you think the nature of technology means. YOUR PERSONAL DEFINITION OF TECHNOLOGY
  13. 13.   Refer to your own technology definition. Compare it to the definitions that you have on pages 8,9 and 10.  Is there other things you could add to make your own definition better?  What do you notice about the difference between the international and NZ definitions of Technology? SUMMARIZING TECHNOLOGY
  14. 14.   As with many of the old curriculum documents they are now a supporting document of the new curriculum.  Read and highlight the main points on pg11/12  With a partner discuss the following questions.  What impact does Technology have on our lives?  Why teach Technology to our children?  What do children gain from learning experiences in Technology? TECHNOLOGY IN THE CURRICULUM
  15. 15.   You Tube is a brilliant way of grabbing children’s attention.  Observe the You Tube clip and think about the message it is giving.  What understanding of the nature of technology does it provide? A GREAT HOOK
  16. 16.   Using THINK PAIR SHARE discuss the first thing children and adults will think of when you ask them what Technology is.  The answer is mostly computers, IPods cell phones and so on. THE MISCONCEPTION OF TECHNOLOGY
  17. 17.   The nature of technology strand has been introduced, to address the need, for more in depth understanding on the purpose and characteristics of technology. THE NATURE OF TECHNOLOGY STRAND
  18. 18.   Refer to the activity on page 13 and 14.  Use Six Hat Thinking to explore the quotes from Set Research Information for teachers/ N.O. 1, 2004 “Putting Students at the Centre developing effective learners in primary technology classrooms” ADDRESSING THE KEY ISSUES USING SIX HAT THINKING
  19. 19.   “ Students perceptions of the nature of technology are linked to the effectiveness of their learning in technology” BLUE HAT THINKING QUOTE ONE
  20. 20.  “When teachers do not teach about the nature of technology, few students talk broadly or comprehensively about it and they find it difficult to build an overview of the subject tending to define it in terms of the current activity they are undertaking.” (Continued to next page…) QUOTE TWO
  21. 21.  (Continued from last page…) “For example, when making a timer such students think that technology is making timers, and when making electronic games they think technology is making electronic games. They have difficulty making generalizations about technology.” BLACK HAT THINKING QUOTE TWO
  22. 22.   “When teachers change their teaching practice to include repeated opportunities for students to discuss the nature of technology, students begin to view technology as a purposeful designing and constructing artifacts and systems rather than seeing technology as the artifact they are currently making.” YELLOW HAT THINKING QUOTE THREE
  23. 23.   “Teachers may talk with students about technology during informal unplanned times and during planned times such as during general class-news times and during planned times such as at the beginning of technology sessions.” HOOK!! GREEN HAT THINKING QUOTE FOUR
  24. 24.   “The research showed that when given these talks and opportunities students also began to see that technology is about the improvement of artifacts, lifestyle, and the environment and that different groups of people influence the development and use of technologies.” WHITE HAT THINKING QUOTE FIVE
  25. 25.  Children’s quotes  Edward (6 years) “It’s about making things so that they are better.”  Jerome (7years) “its human made. It’s learning about trying to improve things.”  Marcia (9 Years) “It is something made and used to make life easier. It’s something made to do something. You can even design for someone else to make.”  Rachel (10 Years) “It’s about designing and making ideas and better things for our world.” RED HAT THINKING QUOTE SIX
  26. 26.   Assisting Students To Build A Broad , Comprehensive Understanding Of The Nature Of Technology Helps Them To See Technology In The World Around Them And To Build An Overview About The Nature Of Technology. CHOOSE YOUR OWN THINKING HAT ADDITIONAL EXTRA 
  27. 27.   As we explore a range of activities to enable students to explore the nature of technology use your sheet on page 3-6 to record your ideas  Think about which level the activities would suit the best.  Also consider how could the activities be adapted to suit junior, middle and senior pupils TEACHING STRATEGIES
