Empowerment through Education

Design-Technology Education Exchange Forum, Session 4

The fourth installment of this international exchange forum was successfully completed on 25 July 2020. This presentation was given by Mr Chris Kennedy (Head of Technology at Waiopehu College; Council Member for Ministry Relations in TENZ).

In this presentation, Mr Kennedy gave an outline of New Zealand’s Technology curriculum, and discussed how contexts for learning can be designed to engage students in Technology education. He also provided an example of how a New Zealand school redeveloped its Technology courses to better meet the needs of its community, and presented a framework for other schools to do the same.
