Summary

This paper synthesizes the research of the last decade, with a view to identifying the major trends and issues that have been the focus of inquiry during that period. It is a reflective statement of the current state of knowledge in technology education, and by implication, points to those areas where knowledge is weakest. The paper makes a deliberate attempt to highlight contrasting emphases in the research conducted on opposite sides of the Atlantic and it seeks to stimulate the use of theoretical insights from other areas of educational research in the search for solutions to problems in technology education. It focuses mainly, though not exclusively, on work published in the "Journal of Technology Education," as representing an important forum for reporting research in the United States, and on the "International Journal of Technology and Design Education," as one of the foremost technology education journals in the United Kingdom. The method employed is described as a modified content analysis. All of the articles published in the two journals during the years 1990 to 2000 were listed and classified according to content, as indicated by topic. Subsequent reading of an article often resulted in its being put into more than one category. The categories of articles that emerged were: nature of technology, technology curriculum; outcomes and assessment of technology education; children's thinking in technology; technology teacher education; and gender and values issues in technology education. This research, still a work in progress, reports on all but the last two areas. (Contains 55 references.) (AEF)
