dc.contributor.authorLee, L. S.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe technology education in Taiwan is prescribed in the national curriculum and provided to all students in grades 1-12. However, it faces the following challenges: (1) Lack of worthy image, (2) Inadequate teachers in elementary schools, (3) Deficient teaching vitality in secondary schools, and (4) Diluted technology teacher education programs. In order to create opportunities for the survival and prosperity of technology education in Taiwan, the following efforts should be made: (1) Embrace technology education in country-wide further-study examinations, (2) Initiate an international comparison of students' technological literacy, and (3) Make well preparation for the next national curriculum revision.
