Meaning of Technique
What is Technique:
As a technique, it is defined the way in which a set of procedures, materials or intellectuals, is applied in a specific task, based on the knowledge of a science or art, to obtain a determined result.
The skill or particular ability of a person to use these procedures or resources is also known as a technique.For example, at a sporting level we usually value this type of qualities in an athlete: "I have never seen anyone play soccer with such an exquisite technique as Maradona's."
On the other hand, technique can also be used to refer to how to do something: "Juan, you have to teach me that technique to peel mangoes." In this sense, the technique is transmissible, reproducible, transformable and improvable in any of its fields of application, be it industrial, artistic or relative human actions.
In relation to the above, it should be added that the technique was born out of human need to modify the environment in which man develops to make it more adaptable to his needs. For the same reason, the technique originates by imagination, and then it is concretized.
In music, vocal technique is the different ways in which the speaking organs are used to develop the voice, without damaging the phonatory structures that intervene at the time.
In relation to the above, the speaking organs are the respiratory organs (lungs, bronchi and tracheas), phonation organs (larynx, vocal cords, resonators) and articulation organs (palate, tongue, teeth, lips and glottis).
Technique is studied by technology.
A technician or technician is also known as the person specially instructed in a technological institute or technical school for activities of this category. For its part, in Mexico it is also used to refer to members of a police force.
It is noteworthy that technical schools are dedicated solely to the training of technicians in any area: electronics, tourism, electromechanics, marketing and public relations, among others.
On the other hand, as technical words are known those that are used within a specific science or field of knowledge, and are distinguished from the language of everyday use.
Etymologically, it comes from the Greek 'τεχνικός' (tejnicós), which in turn is derived from "τέχνη' (tejne), which means "technique, art or trade".
Technical in education
Within the field of teaching, the technique comprises an important variety of procedures, strategies and methods of an intellectual nature that are used both to impart knowledge (didactic techniques and debate dynamics), and to improve the learning processes of students ( reading, research, or study techniques, such as mind mapping or concept mapping).
One of the most common techniques for students are technical sheets, a document in which it contains the most important and detailed data on a specific topic, it can be about books, animals, plants, among others.
The application of this technique responds to the need to optimize performance and results within the educational field.
Technique in art
Within the artistic field, the technique refers to the mastery of a set of procedures and resources, intellectual and material, that a certain artist uses for the expression of an aesthetic fact.
The techniques are different for each specific discipline, be it painting, music, sculpture, literature or dance. Just as, in painting, the use of color, the handling of proportions or light and shadows is valued, in music the manipulation of an instrument, the vocal domain of a singer or the knowledge of the musical theory of a composer will be appreciated. In this sense, technical skill determines, to a large extent, the quality of a work of art.
