Abstract:The paper describes a small case study in which pre-service design & technology teachers on a one year post graduate teacher training course in London, England were introduced to the idea of teaching pupils in schools about the nature of technology and the relationship between technology and society by means of a one day workshop. Observation of the workshop and the learning outcomes indicated that the trainee teachers were engaged and showed willingness to carry outn such teaching as part of a school design & technology curriculum. The discussion considers the trainees’ responses, the significance of such activity in initial teacher education in the light of current revisions to the National Curriculum in England and how such considerations of the nature of technology in initial teacher education might be developed through collaboration amongst those interested.
