Techlink Case Studies
The case studies on the Techlink site are divided into three main areas – Classroom Practice, Technologists' Practice, and Enterprise Links.
Classroom Practice case studies provide examples of how teachers from a range of schools have planned and implemented quality technology units. They include projects from all levels of teaching – from Year 1 to Year 13.
Technologists' Practice case studies tell the stories of technological projects from throughout New Zealand and provide an excellent classroom resource for Technology teachers to use as examples of product, process and problem-solving in Technological Practice, and celebrate the excellence of innovative New Zealanders.
Enterprise links case studies show how teachers initiated, maintained and benefited by having organisations interact with their students and illustrate how technological skills are relevant in careers and business practice.
