Summary

A human systems approach that emphasizes knowing the parts of a phenomenon, their order, and particularly their interactions needs to be adopted by industrial arts. A student-based theoretical framework that incorporates systems and subsystems in industrial arts has been presented by Donald Maley. The theoretical base includes 10 organismic propositions and delineates how the whole boy or girl can best be served in industrial arts. Its major components are the sensory system, the physical motor, the psychological, emotional, intellectual, personality factors, developmental tasks, and coordination of the mental, biological, and intellectual units of the person. The psychomotor function involvement has been focused on as being especially important. Research is needed to study the relationship between the psychomotor and emotional systems, because worker boredom has been observed as one determinant of low-quality work. Studies have already shown significant changes in affective, psychomotor, and cognitive behavior of students after creative thinking experiences. A theoretical model that emphasizes the linking of the sensory, psychomotor, personally emotional, and intellectual systems of students is in the direction of what industry identifies as a critical need.
