Implications of Missed Opportunities for Learning and Assessment in Design and Technology Education.
Stein, Sarah J.; McRobbie, Campbell J.; Ginns, Ian S.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v18 n1 p35-49 Jan 2002
Investigated three experienced elementary teachers' practices and beliefs when implementing design and technology education for the first time. Teachers lacked knowledge about the new curriculum. They did not capitalize upon opportunities for scaffolding students' learning within the open-ended activities they implemented. Prior conceptions of teaching and learning contributed to their inability to capitalize on opportunities to promote student learning. (SM)
