There is a strong interactive relationship between the education and the development of modern design. Every essential progress in design education had most probably encouraged a further development of modern design. The encouragement came not only from the educational practice, but also from the educational theory study which inevitably referred to the cultivating of design idea. As the establishment or the change of ideas could deeply influence the practice as well as the academic researching in modern design, the training of good thinking is revealing its importance in modern design education implementation. Here under a historical background of the evolution of modern design movements, it gives a general interpretation on the idea and practice of modern design education in the method of technological and ethical sociology, in which the application of technology to innovation and the sense of social responsibility draw a central attention comparatively, so as to present and clarify the meanings of the relationship between technology, society and design with the main objective of exhibiting the importance of technological innovation and social responsibility in the principles of modern design education.
