    In August 1993 in the Netherlands, a new system of education has been implemented in the first stage of secondary education, called 'basic education', a common curriculum for the first two or three years of secondary education. Fifteen subjects, among others Technology Education, are taught in 'basic education' to children with different achievement levels.

    The National Institute for Curriculum Development (abbreviated in Dutch: SLO) has developed, besides a new National Technology Education Curriculum, several teaching packages for Technology Education, in cooperation with schools for secondary education.

    Problem solving is one of the major aspects of these teaching packages and is defined as a structured method of solving technical problems, with a step-wise approach by means of questions, followed by a practical execution of the solution of the problem.
