"....this book deserves a wide readership. Practising teachers should find plenty to interest them. It looks like a clear favourite for the reading lists of students on initial teacher training courses.." - Design and Technology Teaching "This book is very readable, besides being an important source of reference. It should be part of any induction courses for design and technology teacher training." - Design and Technology Times Design and technology is crucial to the national economy and to individual employment prospects. John Eggleston shows how this area of work has come to occupy a new and central place in the school curriculum, and highlights the higher status and a new identity now accorded to technology. He explores this new identity, its origins, its manifestations in classroom practice, and its possible futures. He pays particular attention to its role in the national curriculum, to assessment, to gender and race issues, and to management, and includes two entirely new chapters on the training of design and technology teachers and on design and technology in classroom practice. This best-selling book has been fully revised in the light of the new National Curriculum for Design and Technology which took effect in 2000 and will continue to be essential reading for all trainee and practising teachers of design and technology.

Teaching as a Design Science

Teaching is changing. It is no longer simply about passing on knowledge to the next generation. Teachers in the twenty-first century, in all educational sectors, have to cope with an ever-changing cultural and technological environment. Teaching is now a design science. Like other design professionals – architects, engineers, programmers – teachers have to work out creative and evidence-based ways of improving what they do. Yet teaching is not treated as a design profession. Every day, teachers design and test new ways of teaching, using learning technology to help their students. Sadly, their discoveries often remain local. By representing and communicating their best ideas as structured pedagogical patterns, teachers could develop this vital professional knowledge collectively. Teacher professional development has not embedded in the teacher’s everyday role the idea that they could discover something worth communicating to other teachers, or build on each others’ ideas. Could the culture change? From this unique perspective on the nature of teaching, Diana Laurillard argues that a twenty-first century education system needs teachers who work collaboratively to design effective and innovative teaching.

Issues in Design and Technology Teaching identifies and examines the important concerns in this subject, seeking to challenge preconceptions and stimulate debate about this relative newcomer to the National Curriculum. Key areas addressed are: Issues of Definition: getting to the roots of the concept of design and its educational value Issues in the Classroom: the role and implementation of new technologies, and issues involved in planning and assessment Issues in the School Context: gender as a concern in Design and Technology, with an examination of boys' performance in this area Issues Beyond the School: ethics, values and attitudes in Design and Technology, and a discussion of the benefits of partnerships with industry. Issues in Design and Technology Teaching provides support for student teachers and NQTs in primary and secondary schools, helping them to reach informed judgements about the subject they are teaching.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
