Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1980 
28 p. 
Summary

The holistic nature of the human experience and the reality of human functioning need to be considered by the industrial arts profession; an overemphasis on psychomotor functioning to the exclusion of affect and cognition, will ultimately win the profession neither acceptance nor effectiveness. The nature of learning involves a range of inter-related factors which tie in well with industrial arts activities, which by nature are also multi-sensory. Moreover, we know that personal outcomes are greatly enhanced when these experiences are first hand and actively experienced by the learner. Therefore, the industrial arts laboratory should be utilized not as a shop in which one makes things, but rather as a laboratory of diverse facilities associated with life, industry, and technology, functioning to serve as a living-learning environment for the development of the total person. The effective teacher attempts to establish connections or linkages between class or laboratory activities and individual student frames of reference. (Five recommendations are made as to how the profession can enhance the development of the whole person.) (MEK)
