Technology in the General Studies Syllabus for Hong Kong Primary Schools

小學常識科的科技教育

Yvonne Y. H. FUNG(馮施鈺珩)

Abstract

For about two decades, there has been a growing awareness that technology should have a position in the school curriculum in order to prepare students for our increasingly technologically-oriented society. In many countries, technology exists either as a separate subject or inegrated with others, at both the primary and secoondary levels. Based on the nature of technology and technological knowledge, and the objectives of technology curricula in England and Wales, Australia and United States of America, five basic objectives of school technology are suggested. The General Studies syllabus for Hong Kong primary schools is then analysed to find out how technology education will be implemented through it.

摘要

近二十年來,很多學者都認為要使學生適應越來越趨科技化的社會,學校課程應包括科技這一範疇。直至現在,很多國家已把科技列入學校課程裡,或是成為一個獨立科目,或是把它融入其他科目中。本文首先探討科技和科技知識的特徵,然後檢視英格蘭和威爾斯,澳洲以及美國學校科技課程的目標,從而提出五個基本的科技教育目標。最後分析本港小學的常識科課程綱要,以探討這一科如何推行科技教育。
