Contemporary theories of learning in science and technology, including constructivist and conceptual change perspectives, will be explored in this subject. The teaching and learning of science and technology through learner-centered approaches and curriculum integration is promoted. Students will be required to integrate scientific and technological concepts, the skills and processes of conducting scientific investigations and designing and producing solutions, literacy, numeracy, and learning across the curriculum content into their science and technology planning and teaching.
