Fundamentally the study of technology is the application of knowledge and experience in seeking to change and improve our lives.  Technology is about developing the skills of finding answers to everyday problems.  It encourages children to be inventive in designing practical solutions to problems and so bring about change and improvements in existing situations.  In technology ideas are conceived, developed and modified by children to address certain problems.  This work may involve the defining of a task, deciding how the task is to be done and responding to the consequences of the thoughts and actions both as they happen and later when the results are judged.  This work starts with very simple materials in the early years and progresses to sophisticated use of computers in helping find answers to the problems.  It includes working with food and textiles.  All classes are equipped with materials and tools, which children use to answer progressively difficult challenges.
