Call for papers
PATT 26 will be held at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, the beautiful capital of Sweden. The PATT 26 conference is part of a two-conference arrangement organized by the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Centre for School Technology Education (CETIS), Linköping University, under the common heading Technology Education in the 21st Century. We hereby invite international colleagues whose interests in technology education span from early years through to upper secondary education and teacher education to this golden opportunity to share and learn more about the latest research in the field.
The overarching theme for the conference is Technology Education in the 21st Century. Within this we would welcome a wide range of papers that present and discuss research in a variety of key areas in school technology education. Topics could include aspects of learning, teaching, assessing and related pedagogy; of global issues such as sustainability, ethics, values and culture; of interdisciplinarity such as STEM, links with creative and performing arts, links with arts and social sciences; of the impact of technological developments on learning, teaching and assessing in technology education; of the potential of a design approach; of the potential of historical, sociological and philosophical perspectives on technology education, etc.
