    • Abstract:
      In 1997, the Industrial Technology Education Association of Taiwan (ITEA-Taiwan) hosted the 1997 International Conference on Technology Education in the Asia-Pacific Region (ICTE) in Taipei. The ICTE constitution was signed and the Association to Association mode was formed at that conference. This mode has provided the technology educators in the Asia-Pacific region with a good platform for idea sharing and collaboration. In 2021, the ITEA-Taiwan hosted ICTE in Taipei for its third time. In order to enable technology educators and the ICTE participants in ICTE 2021 to better understand technology teacher education in the Asia-Pacific region, the Ministry of Education's K-12 Education Administration in Taiwan subsidized the Central Taiwan University of Science and Technology to edit and publish this book in 2020. The editors-in-chief planned manuscript guidelines, then invited authors from ICTE's 7 members and 1 observer to write country-specific chapters. A cross-country comparison was made in the 9th chapter. That is, this book complies articles about the technology education and technology teacher education from eight countries/areas in the Asia-Pacific region, specifically Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan and the United States. Technology education in this book refers to the technological literacy education as a realm of general education in primary and secondary schools. It includes both Design and Technology (D&T)/Technology and Engineering (T&E) and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Book chapter authors are listed in this book. [This book was published by Central Taiwan University of Science and Technology (CTUST) and K-12 Education Administration, Ministry of Education, Taiwan.]
