Abstract [sv]

Placeringen av teknik som skolämne i Sverige diskuteras i ljuset av ett utvecklings-och forskningsprojekt där en grupp av teknik lärare och forskare arbetat tillsammans för att utveckla innehåll och arbetssätt för teknikämnet. Den historiskt marginella ställningen som teknik har gör det svårt för lärare att arbeta med ämnet. De saknar formell utbildning,självförtroende och kollegialt stöd och har svårt att förverkliga målen i kursplanen. Utvecklingsprojektet har gett lärarna verktyg för att arbeta med teknik genom att besvara deras vad-hur-när frågor som rör teknik undervisning. Projektet har visat på vikten av samarbete mellan lärare i olika ämnen. Integreringen av teknik i andra ämnen stärker dess position och ger den mer utrymme i läroplanen. Dessutom blir tekniken mer synlig och definieras på ett sätt som är meningsfullt för eleverna.

Abstract [en]

The position of technology as a school subject in Sweden is discussed in the light of a development and research project where a group of technology teachers and researchers worked together in order to develop content and ways of working for technology classes. The historically marginal position of technology as a school subject makes it difficult for teachers to work with the subject. They lack formal training, confidence and collegial support and find it difficult to realize the goals in the syllabus. The development project has given the teachers tools to work with technology by answering their what-how-when questions concerning technology teaching. The project has shown the importance of cooperation between teachers in different subjects. The integration of technology into other subjects strengthens its position giving it more space in the curriculum. Also, it makes technology more visible and defines it in ways that make meaning to pupils.
