Kilbrink, Nina; Asplund, Stig-Börje – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
The specific focus of this article is how critical aspects of the object of learning to weld are made relevant in interaction between a vocational teacher and a student in the learning processes of welding as part of a Swedish upper-secondary technical vocational education programme. By intertwining variation theory with a conversation analytical…

Kiernan, Louise; Ledwith, Ann; Lynch, Ray – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Design education has moved towards a collaborative practice where designers work in teams and with other disciplines to solve unstructured problems. Along with the cognitive skills involved in the execution of the design process, designers also need skills to work in teams, share information, negotiate common ground and reach consensus.…

Fahrman, Birgit; Norström, Per; Gumaelius, Lena; Skogh, Inga-Britt – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Teachers' teaching practice plays a key role in the learning process of pupils, and for teaching to be successful, teachers must have knowledge in many different fields. This obviously also applies to teaching the subject technology. However, lower secondary school technology education in Sweden has reportedly been described in terms of teaching…

Blom, Nicolaas; Bogaers, Alfred – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
One of the characteristics of the twenty-first century is the increase in the information sources available to designers to make their design decisions. However, current verbal protocol analysis methods and theoretical frameworks do not explain how internal and external information sources contribute to novice designers' moment-to-moment thought…

Biskjaer, Michael Mose; Christensen, Bo T.; Friis-Olivarius, Morten; Abildgaard, Sille J. J.; Lundqvist, Caroline; Halskov, Kim – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Searching for sources of inspiration is central to creative design; however, we have limited knowledge of individual inspiration search strategies in response to varying levels of task constraints. We studied 39 high-school students' inspiration search strategies using Google Images. Low task constrainedness led to "divergent search"…

Aranda, Maurina L.; Lie, Richard; Selcen Guzey, S. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Recent education reforms highlight the importance of engineering design as a tool to improve student science learning in this new view of K-12 science education. However, little research has investigated the thought processes students use while engaging in the highly complex activity of design. Therefore, building on theories of productive…

Wright, Natalie; Miller, Evonne; Dawes, Les; Wrigley, Cara – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Twenty-first century education needs to be re-envisioned to equip citizens for a lifetime of rapid change and complexity. Design has been proposed as a pedagogical framework that develops the required foundational literacies, competencies and character qualities citizens need to thrive in this new creative knowledge economy. However, widespread…

Lin, Kuen-Yi; Yu, Kuang-Chao; Hsiao, Hsien-Sheng; Chang, Yu-Shan; Chien, Yu-Hung – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Collaborative problem-solving skills are one of the key competencies required in the twenty-first century. In this study, researchers attempted to compare the effectiveness of web-based collaborative problem-solving systems (wCPSS) and classroom-based collaborative hands-on learning activities (cCHLA) in the development of collaborative…

Gibson, Miriam – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
In this article, I examine the changing perception of craft activity since the Industrial Revolution and explore how the social values imposed on craft processes have impacted their effectiveness as tools for learning and self-transformation. Situated within a social constructivist framework, this article suggests that learning occurs as the…

van As, Francois – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Learners today need more than the core subjects offered at school to be successful in the twenty-first-century. By involving technology student teachers in activities that are authentic to technological practice, as teachers, they should be able to provide stimulating and relevant learning for learners ("Turnbull in Int J Technol Des…

Nordlöf, Charlotta; Hallström, Jonas; Höst, Gunnar E. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Educational research on attitudes shows that both teaching and student learning are affected by the attitudes of the teacher. The aim of this study is to examine technology teachers' perceptions of and attitudes towards teaching technology in Swedish compulsory schools, focusing on teachers' perceived control. The following research question is…

Gray, Colin M.; McKilligan, Seda; Daly, Shanna R.; Seifert, Colleen M.; Gonzalez, Richard – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Numerous studies have shown the value of introducing cognitive supports to encourage the development of creative ability, and researchers have developed a variety of methods to aid in generating ideas. However, design students often struggle to explore more ideas after their initial ideas are exhausted. In this study, an empirically validated tool…
