Abstract: The National Curriculum (NC) model of design and technological capability is intended to become the institutionalised model. As the first cohort reaches Key Stage 4 GCSE syllabuses will be altered to fall into line and no doubt the reform of A and AS levels will be expected to follow, but how well-founded is the basis for all this reform? This paper seeks to offer the basis for discussion of the well-foundedness of National Curriculum Technology in a number of ways: * by considering the apparent model of design and technological capability that is at its centre * by questioning its fundamental ideology * by discussing its documentation * by reflecting on other models of design and technology. The discussions concerning changes to GCSEs and educational provision for the 16-19 age range are vital in determining future design and technological capability, and it should not be taken for granted that the existing model of NC design and technology will prevail.
Description: This is a conference paper.
