Since national goals, objectives and curriculum do not exist at the primary, elementary or secondary school levels in Canada, almost all disciplines within the K-12 curriculum have been developed at a provincial level, including Technology Education. As a result, a variety of interpretations and approaches to Technology Education have developed across Canada, many emerging from what were typically variations on Industrial Arts/Industrial Education programs. These changes have mostly developed in the past five years, and in many instances, full implementation has not yet been reached. Specifically, this paper presents a brief overview of the Canadian Technology Education situation; shows how the curriculum is being organized; illustrates the processes of curriculum delivery; and concludes with a discussion of several current issues and trends that need to be considered as development and implementation take place.
