Technologies Education: Entrepreneurship and Innovation EPR304

Introduction

Technologies education provides rich possibilities for imaginative and engaged learning through activities such as three-dimensional printing, robotics, exploration of the ‘Internet of Things’, and product development. This unit introduces you to strategies to teach Technologies by focussing on stimulating students’ own sense of innovation and entrepreneurship. You will plan to teach the Australian Curriculum: Technologies using an integrated approach, including methods to assess student learning achievement in this subject area. You will have the opportunity to select or blend all four Technologies contexts (engineering principles and systems; food and fibre production; food specialisation; or materials and technologies) with Digital Technologies, as well as learn project management skills, and design and computational thinking to enhance student learning of Technologies in a holistic manner.
