Through an examination of the learning processes Working Technologically, this unit focuses on developing children's interest and skills in understanding and using technology. In particular, it considers design as a creative process, founded on an understanding of the natural and physical world, which promotes science conceptual understanding. Teaching of these learning processes is supported by exploring the content strands of Built Environments, Information and Products and the Chemical World content strands. It considers aspects of curriculum planning, classroom management, development/selection of activities and resources relevant to the teaching of technology in the primary school classroom.
