Intellectual property in technology teaching
In 2007, Susan Corbett of Victoria University of Wellington undertook a study identifying intellectual property implications and issues that emerge from selected Technology Online Classroom Practice, Technologists' Practice case studies, and from visits to schools.
As part of her documentation, she supplied material suitable for inclusion on the Technology Online site. This subsite and the pages specifically relating to the case studies are the result.
This section includes:
- Intellectual property – brief definitions – explains some basic. key terms and concepts of intellectual property in the New Zealand legal environment
- Intellectual property and student work – highlights some Intellectual property issues of interest to Technology students when undertaking project work (This has been gathered from Susan 's interviews with students and staff at Tauranga Boys' College.)
- Confidentiality agreements – Technology students can use these to help protect their intellectual property when undertaking project work

- Links in the Technology Curriculum – selected sections of Technology in The New Zealand Curriculum that include Intellectual property issues
