Abstract

In several international contexts, the teaching of technology in schools is changing, with the aim of better responding to the demands of young people, to new social and economic expectations, and the needs stemming from the rapid development of the technologies themselves. After a review of the main current trends and the educational questions they pose, the article reflects on the usefulness of introducing a critical-reflexive approach in the teaching of technology, which would give appropriate space also to the social, ethical, economic, and political problems raised by technologies. To this purpose, the article analyzes the possibilities offered by the introduction of new topics in Technology Education curricula, examines the contact points with the field of media education, and presents some opportunities for future developments, both at the educational and research level.
