The underlying philosophy of the World
Association of Technology Teachers is to support teachers/lecturers
across the world in the delivery of Design and Technology. The
purpose of this section is to allow members and non-members to
publish educational research / essays or to outline ongoing and future
research, into aspects of Design and Technology.
In the past educational research / essays in Design and
Technology has been initiated by University Research Departments and
Educational Administrators. This section of the W.A.T.T. site
welcomes the publication of research / essays from established researchers.
However, W.A.T.T. also welcomes the valuable contribution of
classroom and workshop practitioners who previously have not been
able to publish their research / essays on an established educational site.
W.A.T.T. recognise the valuable contribution of
Technology Educationalists throughout the world and this space has
been made available for their research publications essays. Research papers
on this section can be in any appropriate format / length and cover
any aspect of Design and Technology. Research can be published
directly on this site or a link can be made to the researchers site.
Remember - You do not have to be an established
researcher, you may simply want to publicise your experience and
knowledge in a particular area of Design and Technology.
