Abstract: Currently the Ministry of Education of Colombia (MEN) is in the process of implementing a proposal for technology education to be incorporated for all school pupils within a general curriculum. This represents an attempt to overcome the inherent limitations of the previous status given to this curriculum area and its precursors, and to seek an appropriate curriculum for a developing country. Goldsmiths Technology Education Research Unit (TERU) was invited to assist in the development of this programme which would become a pilot project with a representative sample of Colombian schools. This paper charts the development of the project to date in case study form, using this as a platform from which to make comparisons which might usefully illuminate curriculum developments in the field of technology in other countries.
Description: This is a conference paper.
