Technology Education

At the request of the Ministry of Education, the Society has convened an expert panel to provide advice on the development of technology within NCEA and the secondary-tertiary education system.

Specifically, this will relate to:

  • The relationship within NCEA of National Curriculum and industry derived Technology and Hangarau learning, noting that the immediate focus is on Technology in the New Zealand Curriculum.
  • Characteristics of a senior secondary school system which effectively supports technology and hangarau pathways at NCEA and into further study and employment.
  • The Review of Achievement Standards and development of subjects in the technology/hangarau learning area at NCEA Levels 2 and 3 (including New Zealand Scholarship).

It is anticipated that the group will provide informal expert commentary directly to the Ministry during its work, and a final written report which will be publicly available.

Members of the panel are:

  • Dr Andrew Cleland FRSNZ (interim chair)
  • Professor Alister Jones
  • Dr Cliff Harwood
  • Angela Christie
  • Cheryl Pym
  • Mary-Claire Proctor
  • Astrid Visser
  • Thomas Mitai
