Davis, Robert S.; Ginns, Ian S.; McRobbie, Campbell J.
Journal of Technology Education, v14 n1 p35-50 Fall 2002
Students in grades 2 (n=27), 4 (n=37), and 6 (n=28) were asked questions about artifacts or pictures. Their explanations, which revealed their understanding of such technological concepts as material properties and stability, were classified as naive, artifact related, or not artifact related. Explanations tended to cluster in a classification at different age levels. (Contains 23 references.) (SK)
