Technologies Planning Resource

The purpose of the resource is to support learning, teaching and assessment of technologies in primary schools. This resource has been developed through the RAiSE Programme with support from Education Scotland and Scottish Government. Raising Aspirations in Science/STEM Education (RAiSE) is a programme of Education Scotland in partnership with The Wood Foundation, Scottish Government and participating local authorities which enhances the delivery of STEM education in primary schools.

This resource supports planning for technologies around the Experiences and Outcomes from Early to Second Level. These activities and approaches should be viewed as useful starting points and suggestions and they are in no way prescriptive.

The resource is organised in two ways – by curricular organiser or by Level.

By clicking on the relevant icons below you will be directed to the Technology Planning Resource on a Google Drive where the relevant resources for each level can be found and downloaded should you wish.

Schools and centres are encouraged to bundle Experiences and Outcomes (EOs) together when planning learning and teaching. These planning resources are aligned to individual E&Os. This approach was taken to provide maximum flexibility to establishments to allow them to bundle E&Os in a way most appropriate to them. This approach matches well with settings and establishments planning learning to fit their own, local context and the interests of their young people.  Each plan contains links to other curricular areas and contexts to support interdisciplinary learning.

The resource has been developed by practitioners, for practitioners.  We would like to thank Education Scotland’s Digital Team for their contribution in quality assuring the resource.
