TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION IN FINLAND – CRAFT, CREATIVITY, TEXTBOOKS OR TECHNOLOGY

Ossi AUTIO [1]


Changes in the economy, nature, production and society together with increasing scientific and technological knowledge make demands of transforming school teaching in the field of technology education. This article analyses current trends in Finnish technology education. The aim of the article is briefly to explore the integration between science - technology - and traditional craft education in Finland. Finnish technology education can be characterized as the design approach that has evolved from the craft oriented tradition. Additionally, it involves many elements of computer controlling and electronic principles. Thanks to Finnish industry and their interest groups there are some signs of strengthening in technology education. But still much of the learning is based on traditional craft education focused on production skills. Approaches that are now dominant in craft education do not prepare students to meet the challenges of modern technology and working life.
