HENDLEY and JEPHCOTE, 1992. A critical analysis of the operational aims and objectives for technology for 14 to 16 year olds in England and Wales. IDATER 1992 Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
This paper analyses published aims and objectives for Technology for 14 to 16 year olds from two sources. The sources are: the Statutory Orders for Technology; General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) syllabuses.
The analysis will focus on such concepts as breadth, depth, progression, balance, differentiation and relevance. The implications of the aims and objectives for classroom teaching and learning strategies, resource provision and student assessment will be identified and discussed. The overall objective will be to identify areas of commonality and areas of difference within the documents analysed.
