    Description: Practice versus theory: The value of Technology Education
    Technology Education is a core element of the New Zealand Curriculum and encompasses a lot more than just woodwork or digital technology. Because of its practical nature, it can be difficult to assess and is sometimes misunderstood or sidelined by subjects which are perceived as more ‘academic’. Professor Williams will describe his research, which aims to assess practice, and in so doing, help overcome the false dichotomy between theory and practice. He will argue that technology needs to be recognised as a broad and highly-valued subject.

    Digital citizenship in the knowledge societies
    Knowledge societies are the desired outcome of a new form of future societies. It is not clear, however, how this aspiration can be achieved or recognized by whole communities when inequality in terms of access to digital resources (digital divide) exist. Increasingly, digital access is becoming a new citizenship right on par with social welfare, health care and education in societies with welfare regimes. My presentation discusses the issues related to bridging this digital divide from a range of perspectives, political to different paradigms of social exclusion.
