In 2020 an article about American experts’ opinions on the future of technology education was published. Several concerns were expressed by the experts in the Delphi study that had been conducted, such as a shortage of teachers and funding. From the start of the study in the USA, the idea was to conduct similar studies in other countries. It is interesting to see to what extent the outcomes are USA-specific or more broadly valid. To find that out a similar study was done in Flanders (the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium) and the Netherlands. In our Delphi study, consent was found among the experts in three rounds. It became clear that there are similarities between the USA outcomes but also differences. Most of those differences can be explained by taking into account the local developments in the different countries.
