Class Info

God created human beings in his own likeness. People were created as intelligent beings with a desire to seek solutions and to solve problems. God also placed within human being His sense of creativity.

Technology is a curriculum content area that lends itself to the development and stimulation of these God-given abilities. The teaching of technology needs also to stimulate students to recognise the positive and negative impact of technology on humanity and society and explore and develop ways in which technology may be positively and morally appropriately used.

Technology is intervention by design. It uses intellectual and practical resources to create technological outcomes, which expand human possibilities by addressing needs and realising opportunities.

Design is characterised by innovation and adaptation and is at the heart of technological practice. It is informed by critical and creative thinking and specific design processes. Effective and ethical design respects the unique relationship that New Zealanders have with their physical environment and embraces the significance of Māori culture and world views in its practice and innovation.

Technology makes enterprising use of knowledge, skills and practices for exploration and communication, some specific to areas within technology and some from other disciplines. These include digitally-aided design, programming, software development, various forms of technological modelling, and visual literacy – the ability to make sense of images and the ability to make images that make sense (NZ Curriculum).
