Title: AGRICULTURAL TECHNOLOGY


1
AGRICULTURAL TECHNOLOGY
  • Definition
  • Scope
  • Purpose
  • Learning Outcomes

2
DEFINITION
  • Agricultural Technology focuses on technological
    processes used in agriculture
  • To create an understanding of how processes,
    equipment and structures are used with people,
    soil, plants, animals and their products,

3
  • to sustain and maintain quality of life and to
    promote economic, aesthetic and sound cultural
    values.

4
PURPOSE
  • The subject Agricultural Technology will expose
    learners to SKVA relevant within the agricultural
    and farming environment. It takes cognisance of
    and relates to the C O and D Outcomes outlined in
    Chapter 1, by preparing learners to

5
  • understand the social contribution of
    Agricultural Technology.
  • identify and solve problems in an Agricultural
    Technology environment
  • communicate effectively using verbal, written,
    visual, and graphical communication

6
  • organise and manage activities responsibly and
    effectively
  • collect, analyse, organise, critically evaluate
    and present information
  • use science and technology effectively and
    critically,
  • Manage the impact of Agricultural Technology on
    natural resources
  • Show an understanding of the indigenous
    knowledge, ethical considerations

7
SCOPE
  • Agricultural Technology affords the learners the
    opportunity to apply the technological process to
    identify, investigate, design, make, evaluate and
    communicate by using skills to carry out
    practical projects, operate, repair and maintain
    equipment, design and construct structures in the
    agricultural environment as applicable to people,
    plants, animals, soil and their products.

8
  • The following generic concepts are imbedded in
    Agricultural Technology
  • identify and solve problems using the
    technological process
  • safety rules and regulations applicable within
    agricultural environment,
  • use safety measures in the transport of animals
    and livestock
  • basic operational knowledge and correct use of
    agricultural tools, equipment and machinery

9
  • effective communication techniques
  • effective use of computer technology
  • construction, erecting and maintenance (buildings
    and structures)
  • maintenance and repair (implements etc)
  • energy principles and its application

10
  • planning, construction and maintenance of animal
    handling facilities
  • prevention of soil erosion
  • safe and effective use of agricultural equipment
  • planning, designing and maintenance of macro and
    micro irrigation and hydroponics systems

11
  • planning, construction and maintenance of
    production plants and
  • cost calculation in the agricultural environment.

12
  • The following processes must be
  • embedded in Agricultural Technology
  • learn to solve problems in methodical, scientific
    and creative ways
  • learn by dealing directly with inclusivity, human
    rights, social and environmental issues in
    theoretical and practical tasks

13
  • use and engage with subject related knowledge in
    a purposeful way
  • use a variety of life skills when working on
    projects in an authentic context and
  • develop more positive attitudes and perceptions
    towards career pathways.

14
LEARNING OUTCOMES
  • LEARNING OUTCOME 1 Technology, Society and the
    Environment
  • The learner is able to express
  • awareness and show understanding of the
    interrelationship between
  • Agricultural Technology, society and the
    environment.

15
  • LEARNING OUTCOME 2 Technological Process
  • The learner is able to understand and apply the
    technological process.

16
  • LEARNING OUTCOME 3 Knowledge and Understanding
  • The learner is able to show an understanding of
    knowledge, principles and concepts used in
    Agricultural Technology.

17
  • LEARNING OUTCOME 4 Application of Knowledge
  • The learner is able to apply the principles,
    practices and skills used in Agricultural
    Technology by organising and managing activities
    responsibly and effectively.
