Description & Coverage
Description:

Because of the nature of their subject, technology teachers have found ways to make learning active and exciting, often through new activities and projects that have real-world relevance. As technology fields grow, the success of technology teachers is tied in with innovation rather than the accomplishments of the past.

Advanced Teaching Methods for the Technology Classroom provides a comprehensive, critical approach to meeting the new challenges of technology in the classroom. This book gathers together research on technology methods, principles, and content, and acts as a reference source for proven and innovative methods. Advanced Teaching Methods for the Technology Classroom presents an introduction to teaching educational technology, design, and engineering. It also contains strategies for innovation by examining the what, why, and how of technology education.

Reviews and Testimonials

The whole book is a nice balance between foundational and practical issues. It is quite an accomplishment to put together a comprehensive book such as this and the author is to be complimented for his work. I warmly recommend the book to teachers and teacher educators.

– M. J. de Vries, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands

It is worth scanning, then reading, then studying, then returning to again and again. Eye-opening it is, yes, but it can also open minds and education systems.

– British Journal of Educational Technology, Vol. 39, No. 1 (2008)
