Abstract

A newly-developed technical education curriculum for secondary schools known as technology was introduced into the Solomon Islands education system in 2013. This paper is based on a case study of four technology education teachers’ experiences in preparation for teaching the new technical education curriculum using open-ended tasks. The findings revealed that the teachers did encounter some difficulties as well as successes. The successes include the impact of the open-ended task teaching approach on students’ learning. It extends students learning beyond the walls of the classrooms into community involvement.
