Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore senior-high-school technology teachers' viewpoints on a planned pre-engineering curriculum. First, a planned pre-engineering curriculum was drafted, and then a questionnaire was mailed to 110 technology teachers. Finally, 77 valid questionnaires were obtained, a return rate of 70%. The results of this study showed that the senior-high-school technology teachers had positive viewpoints in the planned pre-engineering technology education curriculum, but the technology teacher education institutes should put more emphasis on exploring the development trend in the future.
