The three strands of Technology in the NZC (Technological Practice, Technological Knowledge, and Nature of Technology) – together with the six specialist knowledge and skills strands for levels 6, 7, and 8) – support the development of students’ technological literacy.

Each of these strands is broken down into smaller groupings (or substrands) called “components”. For example, the three components of Technological Practice are Brief Development, Planning for Practice, and Outcome Development and Evaluation.
