Research Field Visits 2019

Research Field Visits: Technology education in Taipei (Sept 2019)

Implementing the new national syllabus for Technology Education (TE) in 2019, a shift from skill-based, technology focused TE into a more Design Thinking approach can be seen at school level.

The school visit in Taipei provided the glimpse of possibilities of developing creative and innovative minds through TE at junior and high school level. The developments of new teaching and learning environments also provided the infrastructure for change. This research visit has also received great support and funded by College of Technology and Engineering, Department of Technology Application and Human Resource Development in National Taiwan Normal University.
