Abstract:   (174 Views)
Objectives: This study aimed to examine the effectiveness of work and technology projects in developing the scientific skills of middle school students, according to the Fundamental Transformation Document of Education  (Iran). The field has evolved from technical and professional education to modern technology education due to social, economic, and technological changes. The focus is based on the 20-year vision document and the Fundamental Transformation Document of Education.
Methods: The research was carried out using a qualitative method and an inductive coding system. The studied population consisted of managers, students, and teachers of the first secondary level in Hormozgan province, Iran. Sampling was done using the purposeful sampling method, following the principles of saturation and maximum diversity, which reached saturation with 15 people.
Results: The research reveals mixed opinions on the effectiveness of work and technology projects in enhancing students' scientific skills. Five scientific fields are needed to improve students' skills: technology, financial, ethical, motivational, and artistic. The fundamental transformation document of education focuses on work and technology projects. However, teachers often avoid using these projects due to a lack of facilities, inappropriateness, academic weakness, and lack of motivation.
Conclusions: Considering the impact of work and technology projects on the skills training dimension of the education system, it is necessary to analyze the situation of teachers across the province and the country by using the components introduced in this research and, on the other hand, to examine the context of including expressions and concepts that empower work and technology teachers in the content of the educational and training management program.
