Call for papers: Special Issue on (Contemporary Issues in) Technology Education


LUMAT invites researchers, practitioners, and educators to contribute to the upcoming special issue on (Contemporary Issues in) Technology Education.

This special issue welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions from all aspects and all levels of technology education. We do, however, require, that the work presents clearly how it relates to learning about or for technology. Topics to be addressed can include – but are not limited to:

  • Exploring the variety of approaches that are used to teach technology, such as Inquiry-based learning, Problem-based Learning, Project-based learning, and Design-based Learning, by defining, and identifying the advantages and disadvantages for teaching and learning. 
  • Exploring the implications of drawing on discipline curriculum knowledge into mainstream integrated technology education projects, and how student learning can be mapped. 
  • Investigating how both boys’ and girls’ interests and behaviors can be accommodated in technology education to help ensure the development of appropriate literacies for all.

Submission deadline (full paper): May 31, 2023.
