91052: Demonstrate understanding of the ways a technological outcome, people, and social and physical environments interact

Updated February 2014. This document has been updated in its entirety to address new issues that have arisen from moderation.


This standard is derived from the ‘characteristics of technological outcomes’ component within the ‘nature of technology’ strand of the Technology learning area.

This standard requires students to describe, explain and discuss the successful and unsuccessful interactions between a technological outcome, the people, and the social and physical environments in which the outcome is situated.

To access the standard, student will also need to describe the social and historical context in which the outcome is situated, and identify the people and social and physical environments that interact with the outcome.

The student must consider both influences and impacts when discussing the interrelationships that exist between people, the environment and the outcome.
