Abstract

The facilities that provide material support for the technology curriculum on the Chinese mainland have grown from nothing since the middle of the past century. With the rapid development of technology education on the Chinese mainland, the requirements and needs for related facilities have changed greatly. The development of facilities has started to display their educational role. In reviewing the past development of facilities for technology education, the authors in this article attempt to identify the gaps and shortages that still exist. Further, considering the different levels of development of the social economy and education from south to north in China, the city of Nanjing in this article is taken as an example to illustrate the birth of a facilities standard through document reviews, interviews and observations. Ultimately, it is expected that the facility design will be developed into a universal standard that other cities can follow.
