Vinnervik, Peter – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
The 2017 reform of the Swedish national curriculum requires that all compulsory school mathematics and technology teachers integrate programming into their teaching. The new programming policy poses a particular challenge since a majority of the affected teachers have little or no previous programming experience. This paper reports on a study of…

Chiang, Feng-Kuang; Chang, Chun-Hao; Wang, Shan; Cai, Rui-Heng; Li, Li – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
The study aimed to investigate the effect of an interdisciplinary STEM course on children's attitudes of learning and engineering design skills. A total of 449 elementary school children in China were recruited from three different grade levels (i.e., second, fourth and sixth grade) to participate in this study. All participants attended a weekly…

Cederqvist, Anne-Marie – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
Technology educators often provide activities where pupils design programmed technological solutions (PTS) with various programming materials for developing pupils' technological knowledge related to PTS and digital technology. However, few studies have investigated how pupils experience these activities. To fill this gap in knowledge, this…

Lind, Johan; Pelger, Susanne; Jakobsson, Anders – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
The purpose of this study is to explore whether, and if so how, a design activity could encourage students to express and develop knowledge on emerging technology in relation to issues about sustainability. Several researchers have asserted that, in today's technologically dependent society, it is important to be able to control technology and…

Dziob, Daniel; Górska, Urszula; Kolodziej, Tomasz; Cepic, Mojca – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
The Chain Experiment competition has been held successfully for 6 years in Poland and is attracting growing interest. The competition provides participants with a task that involves designing and constructing a contraption that is an element in a chain of events that are based on various physical phenomena. The contraptions are then linked…

Yang, Zhiyuan; Bao, Defu; Shen, Danni – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
Increasing attention is being given to traditional culture-orientated product design. While Chinese design students lack a deep understanding of traditional Chinese culture and its applications, little in-depth research has investigated this issue. Thus, how educators should guide and improve their students' cultural design in the context of…

So, Winnie Wing Mui; Chen, Yu; Chow, Stephen Cheuk Fai – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
This study assessed elementary school students' conceptions of STEM professions and its potential influence on STEM career interest, as well as the moderation effect of gender on the relationships between conceptions of STEM professionals and career interest in STEM. A total of 216 grade 3 through 5 students in Hong Kong participated in this…

Karadag, Derya; Tuker, Cetin – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
Using computational design methods, this study aims to analyze the effects of an integrated design process model on the ecological awareness of architectural students, and on their ability to incorporate ecological issues in their design work. To this end, two studies have been carried out. The first one involves a survey about how ecology-related…

Roy, Rajib; Das, Niladri – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
In the light of Bandura's (Social foundations of thought and action: a social cognitive perspective, Princeton-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, 1986) social cognitive theory (SCT), we investigated the roles of four different entrepreneurial factors: entrepreneurial qualities (EQ), entrepreneurial knowledge (EK), perceived entrepreneurialism (PE) and…

Loweth, Robert P.; Daly, Shanna R.; Hortop, Amy; Strehl, Elizabeth A.; Sienko, Kathleen H. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
Information gathering activities in engineering design projects play an important role in the identification and definition of stakeholder needs and requirements. However, few studies have explored how students gather information from stakeholders and domain experts in capstone design settings. In this study, we analyzed audio recordings from 19…

Pischetola, Magda – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
The paper analyses possible reasons for the gap between teachers' actions and intentions, reported by research on practices with the use of ICT. The theoretical approach is informed by teachers' beliefs, which are discriminated in two categories: pedagogical and epistemic. A qualitative fieldwork research undertaken in eight public primary schools…

Tran, Khue N.; Kudrowitz, Barry; Koutstaal, Wilma – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
Can originality in real-world creative design thinking be improved through instruction and practice? Do such frequently-used measures of creative ideation as the Alternative Uses Task or Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, or other factors predict students' performance on actual industry-based design-brief challenges? Results to date are weakly…

Hallström, Jonas – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2022
From a philosophical viewpoint, technological design is about connecting what is desirable with what is technically possible. Technology itself plays a major role in design processes, not only because technology development is what designing is all about, but also since the existing technology at any given point in time frames what is possible to…
