Loh, Wei Leong Leon – Design and Technology Education, 2020
The current study aimed to identify and clarify students' critical thinking processes in problem exploration. The current study will adopt the definitions of critical thinking conceptualized by Paul and Elder and, at the same time, attempt to apply the concept of elements of reasoning and intellectual standards to achieve the objectives of this…

Mitchell, Val; Wilson, Garrath; Jewitt, Carey; Mackley, Kerstin Leder; Golmohammadi, Lili; Atkinson, Douglas; Price, Sara – Design and Technology Education, 2020
HCI and Industrial Design are both disciplines that are currently experiencing radical transformation in terms of their identity and scope. HCI has moved beyond its origins in human factors and cognitive psychology towards the proactive and generative design of experience. Industrial Design has similarly evolved from a concern with physical form…

Nitsche, Michael; Gillett, Crystal – Design and Technology Education, 2020
"Prototyping Puppets" combines craft and performance in a puppet making STEM workshop for informal learning. We report on its final evaluation in two events (n=10 and n=13) to show how the design addressed black boxing of technology through a craft-centric approach and successfully engaged different student populations through an…

Karsli, Umut Tuglu; Özker, Serpil – Design and Technology Education, 2020
Biomimetic design is the process of creating innovative ideas inspired by nature. This approach adapts processes of natural organisms to solve design problems and guides design in interior architecture, similar to many other disciplines. This study aims to present the process of implementing the biomimetic approach to interior architectural design…

van Dooren, Elise; Boshuizen, Els; van Merriënboer, Jeroen; Asselbergs, Thijs; van Dorst, Machiel – Design and Technology Education, 2020
The aim of design education is that students learn to think and act like designers. However, the focus in the design studio is mainly on the design product, whereas the 'why and how' of the design process are barely addressed. A risk of learning by performing real-life tasks without addressing the skills involved, that is, without receiving…

Pavel, Nenad; Medola, Fausto Orsi; Berg, Arild; Brevik, Birger – Design and Technology Education, 2020
Accelerated technological innovation induces disruptions in society and education. It results in both threats to and opportunities for the way the society learns and works. This case study examined the phenomenon of learning in a disruptive environment. The chosen typical case of a disruptive learning environment was comprised of multistable…

Erkarslan, Onder; Aykul, Zeynup – Design and Technology Education, 2019
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the adoptability of Open Source Tools (OST) as a learning strategy in undergraduate Industrial Design (ID) education. OST has the potential for students to overcome certain difficulties in specific tasks, such as design presentation, design research, design decision, concept generation and design…

Seery, Niall; Kimbell, Richard; Buckley, Jeffrey; Phelan, Joseph – Design and Technology Education, 2019
Technology subjects are a relatively recent addition to the discipline offerings at postprimary level, and have a short but interesting history in terms of associated educational research. In this paper, an overview of the evolving research agendas that emerged in response to the nature of practice, from the perspectives of the Technology…

Schut, Alice; Klapwijk, Remke; Gielen, Mathieu; de Vries, Marc – Design and Technology Education, 2019
In this paper, we explore the divergent and convergent nature of design feedback and the various responses to this feedback from a group of 24 young novice designers (primary school children age 9-11) taking part in a co-design project. Earlier research emphasizes that feedback can encourage a designer to take divergent as well as convergent paths…

McLain, Matt; Irving-Bell, Dawne; Wooff, David; Morrison-Love, David – Design and Technology Education, 2019
Design and technology (D&T) emerged from a very different education context than it finds itself in today. D&T was to be included in the National Curriculum for England because it was perceived that what children learnt from design and technological activity could not be learnt in another way (DES/WO, 1988). Furthermore, it connected a…

Jaatinen, Juha; Lindfors, Eila – Design and Technology Education, 2019
Finland has its own version of a "makerspace": craft class. Originally, there was one craft class for boys and one for girls. Later, there were classes for different materials, especially for wood and textiles, which are deep-rooted concepts in the Finnish crafts mindset. To reclaim craft class for pupils, or "makers", we must…

Yrjönsuuri, Varpu; Kangas, Kaiju; Hakkarainen, Kai; Seitamaa-Hakkarainen, Pirita – Design and Technology Education, 2019
Co-invention projects in elementary school engage pupils in complex, open-ended design tasks in a practical, hands-on way. Physical materials are an intrinsic part of design, involving trasformation of conceptual ideas into material forms, such as prototypes. These tangible objects mediate embodied thinking and act as material-social mediators of…

Bhattacharjee, Suchismita – Design and Technology Education, 2019
A flipped-classroom pedagogical method has been adopted by some educators over several past decades both knowingly and unknowingly. In this pedagogical method, the traditional classroom lecture and homework settings are flipped. Students are required to watch short video lectures as homework while the regular class sessions are devoted to in class…

Alaswad, Zina – Design and Technology Education, 2019
The purpose of this paper is to understand perceptions of interior design students after using game-based learning (GBL) as an approach to address workload distribution, lack of clear assessment criteria, and deficiencies of the master-apprentice model during the process of solving several small-scale design problems along the course of a…
