What are community based projects?

Community-based projects are an important part of the Technological Education Program curriculum and are organized by teacher candidates to meet community needs. As outline in the Ministry of Education (2009), Technological Education, Ontario curriculum document, "community partners in the area of technological education can be an important resource for schools and students. They can provide support for students in the classroom, and can be models of how the knowledge and skills acquired through the study of the curriculum relate to life beyond school." (MOE, 2009 p. 10)

"Teacher candidates offer their technological expertise, as well as their boundless ideas, energy and enthusiasm, to residents, secondary school students, and community partners in the creation of community-based projects. These projects engage Technological Education teacher candidates in their own learning, and allow them to learn in context and according to their different interests and abilities."
