PATT 26 will be held at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, the beautiful capital of Sweden. The PATT 26 conference is part of a two-conference arrangement organized by the Royal Institute of Technology and the Centre for School Technology Education, CETIS, Linköping University, under the common heading Technology Education in the 21st Century. We hereby welcome international colleagues to this golden opportunity to share and learn more about the latest on-going and completed research in the field of technology education research, spanning from early years through to upper secondary education and teacher education.
The overarching theme for PATT 26 is Technology Education in the 21st Century. The papers in this peer-reviewed conference book all reflect this broad theme, but they also relate to a variety of key areas in school technology education. Research topics include, for example, aspects of learning, teaching, and assessing; pupils’ attitudes; global issues such as sustainability, ethics, values and culture; interdisciplinarity; Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM); links with creative and performing arts; links with arts and social sciences; links with languages; the impact of technological developments on learning, teaching and assessing in technology education; the potential of a design approach; technological artefacts and systems; food technology; historical, sociological and philosophical perspectives on technology education. Together all these areas form a wide spectrum of research of relevance for technology education in the 21st century.
