We are very pleased to welcome Technology Education scholars from around the world to New Zealand for PATT 27. We are delighted to have the PATT conference in the Southern Hemisphere for only the second time in its history. This conference, and these proceedings, continue the almost 30 year old tradition of sharing research and ideas in a collegial and inclusive setting. While the conference theme provides a particular focus on considering the future and sustainability through Technology Education, the proceedings also include a broad range of papers which focus on key areas of importance in primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education. We believe the conference and these proceedings will make a valuable, interesting and significant contribution to the discourses of Technology Education through the introduction of new ideas, the confirmation or critique of assumptions, and the exploration of experiences. This moves our profession forward to rest on a more secure research base and to mature through analysis, interrogation and communication. We appreciate your willingness to come to Christchurch despite the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. We hope that you enjoy the city as it starts to rebuild its future. Your presence here is a small contribution to the rebuild so thank you from the shaken and determined citizens of Christchurch.
