Summary

A rationale for teaching the heritage of technology points out that technology has been used to alter the environment, social institutions, and civilizations, and has a profound effect on human living. An outline for a curriculum in technical heritage shows that it should be taught with respect to three periods--the past, the present, and the future. The heritage of technology related to the past would deal with the present impact of technological developments from a prior period, stressing the evolution of technological developments in a variety of areas. The major unit topics of such a course would be the contribution to the growth of civilization of the development of tools and machines, power and energy, and communications and transportation. A course on the heritage of technology as it relates to the present would involve studies regarding current technology and its future impact. Studies in the design of the future would explore possible beneficial developments based on knowledge of the purposes and uses of technology. An instructional design is presented for each of these projected courses. (JD)
