Abstract | Full Text

In Sweden there is presently a discussion about the benefit of pedagogical content knowledge for teachers in compulsory school. The results of the study indicate that the pupils get an increased interest in technology, which is positively correlated to the didactic competence of the teachers in technology. This competence is strongly connected to the teachers’ formal studies in technology education.Their teaching increased the interest of the pupils in technology and in choosing technology for upper secondary school. The educated teachers also presented teaching much more in accordance with the Swedish curriculum Lpo94 than the non-educated teachers.
