EDST264 - Science and Technology for Early Childhood and Primary Teachers 2

10 cp
Prerequisite: Nil
Teaching Organisation: Nil

This unit contributes to the development of background knowledge and skills necessary to be an effective primary school and early childhood teacher in science and technology. It builds upon the first science unit by broadening pre-service teachers’ understanding of a range of science and technological concepts. This unit again engages pre-service teachers with the themes of matter and energy within a sustainability framework, but with a particular focus on a range of concepts that are relevant to various primary school and early childhood curricula such as earth and space, life and living, ecosystems and biodiversity, matter and materials, energy and change, design and technology.
