Technological education promotes the integration of learning across subject disciplines. For

example, in designing a technological tool, students may gain information about its intended

use (social science), about the materials used in its construction (science), about mathematical

relationships describing its dimensions and shape (mathematics), and about the aesthetic qualities

of its design (the arts); they may also create text that outlines procedures for the tool’s use

(language). Similarly, technology supports students’ work in other subjects. It develops research

skills, supports development in literacy and mathematics, and fosters creativity, critical thinking,

and problem solving. In addition, it promotes global citizenship and environmental awareness.
