Main Article Content

Stephanie Atkinson


Technology Education Today – International Perspectives is the first book in a series to be published by a new network, The Centre of Excellence for Technology Education (CETE) which is a collaborative international research association formed by six leading academic research institutions within the field of Technology and Engineering Education. 

The book is made up of a series of ten chapters each devoted to providing the current state of International Technology Education (TE) in the selected countries of Australia; Canada; Germany; Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.  The book provides an excellent overview into the different approaches, structures and challenges found when implementing TE in each country at a time when the need for developing technological literacy is recognised by all as important and yet TE is struggling to meet various stakeholders’ expectations.
