Abstract

Lewis (1999) analyzed the role of research in technology education. He suggested that: “We have to talk about research needs in a way that engenders ever more possibilities. Rather than boxing in the researchers, we must see ways to push the limits and explore new and different frontiers” (p. 52). Here I reflect on Lewis’ recommendations. I concur with several ideas suggested by Lewis, and I propose that the discussion on research in technology education also needs to consider what students should actually learn after they complete their technology education programs.
