Tiivistelmä

Education has an important impact on preparing children and young adults to participate in future society. To introduce a more equitable gender balance in technology-oriented fields, and, consequently, in the labour market, our knowledge of technology education and gender-related issues should continue to expand and to receive attention. Numerous studies have indicated the importance of how technological activities are conducted in class and how teachers can influence students’ motivation through the application of different pedagogical approaches. This chapter draws on research to enrich understanding of how to increase girls’ interest in technology education by highlighting some practical suggestions for developing technology education in the future.
