Technologies

Within Curriculum for Excellence, the technologies curriculum area relates particularly to contexts that provide scope for developing technological skills, knowledge, understanding and attributes through creative, practical and work-related activities.

Learning in the technologies enables children and young people to be informed, skilled, thoughtful, adaptable and enterprising citizens, and to:

  • develop understanding of the role and impact of technologies in changing and influencing societies
    contribute to building a better world by taking responsible ethical actions to improve their lives, the lives of others and the environment
  • gain the skills and confidence to embrace and use technologies now and in the future, at home, at work and in the wider community
  • become informed consumers and producers who have an appreciation of the merits and impacts of products and services
  • be capable of making reasoned choices relating to the environment, to sustainable development and to ethical, economic and cultural issues
  • broaden their understanding of the role that information and communications technology (ICT) has in Scotland and in the global community
  • broaden their understanding of the applications and concepts behind technological thinking, including the nature of engineering and the links between the technologies and the sciences
  • experience work-related learning, establish firm foundations for lifelong learning and, for some, for specialised study and a diverse range of careers.
