This paper seeks to investigate how the incorporation of dialectical methodology, as part of an inquiry based pedagogy, can increase technological understanding within the design process. Vygotsky sees the development of society as a synthesis of life experience with taught concepts. Technology and its relationship with society will be considered in a case study carried out within the Scottish technology curriculum, where the concept of ergonomics was studied. Current practice in Scotland is explored, and a neo-Vygotskian approach is discussed.
