So just what are the experiences of the teachers who have introduced it into primary classrooms? What kinds of problems and issues have been raised by its introduction?" "This book brings together candid, first-hand accounts of exactly how design and technology works in a variety of classrooms. It also describes the practical realities involved. The cases described here by practising teachers show how action research can be undertaken. They then go on to show how the results of this research have been used to make changes in teachers' aims, methods and the curriculum they teach."--Jacket." ;
