Zahedi, Mithra; Heaton, Lorna – Design and Technology Education, 2017
How do ideas evolve in the context of collaborative design? This research explores the framing strategies and tools involved in the co-construction of a shared understanding in the early stages of a design project. We observed a team of four industrial design students working to design a pop-up shop. We found that, while the key design elements of…

Schenkel, Kathleen; Calabrese Barton, Angela; Tan, Edna; Nazar, Christina Restrepo; Flores, Marcos D. González D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Science for all has been touted as the primary path to equity in science education in the USA. We argue that without attention to the power imbalances that both create and sustain dominant views of science education; such an approach is not equity-oriented but rather science colonizing. In this manuscript, we draw upon critical views of justice to…

Gray, Colin M. – International Journal of Art & Design Education, 2019
Expert designers determine what problem needs to be solved by creating a frame that allows the identification of potential solutions. However, it is unclear how students learn to generate these frames effectively, particularly in relation to ethical decision-making and selecting appropriate constraints. In this study, undergraduate and graduate…

Adams, Paul – Journal of Education Policy, 2016
This paper presents a new heuristic device for the analysis of educational policy. Through an examination of the Evaluative State and the work of Brian Fay, the paper considers the way in which educational policy is subject to rational and linear forms of policy action and implementation. To counter this, positioning theory is deployed to consider…

Studies in science education have explored contextual features that facilitate students' active participation in discussion in argumentation activities. Based on this literature, we aimed to explore students' practices as they shifted their epistemic practices from unproductive to collaborative meaning-making discussion in an argumentation…
