Justification of the Dual-Phase Project-Based Pedagogical Approach in a Primary School Technology Unit
Drain, Michael
Design and Technology Education, v15 n1 p7-14 2010
This research paper describes the use of the Cognitive Apprenticeship (CA) framework to analyse the practices of teacher and students observed during a technology unit. Twenty three children aged 9-10 years were involved in the research and they were taught in a standard classroom. The analysis provides evidence that a two-phase project-based approach was an effective way to implement a technology unit with this primary school class. (Contains 1 table.)
