Teachers can open up the world of technology through language; but they are often unaware of the specific features of the language of science and technology. Genre pedagogy is an approach whereby students learn to understand domain specific text characteristics in order to produce such texts. In this paper an explorative study is presented in which students at a teacher education institution were trained to produce oral and written language that is an inherent part of the domain of technology and society.
