Sundqvist, Pernilla; Nilsson, Tor – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2018
In recent years, technology has been emphasized as an important area in early childhood curricula; however, in many countries preschool does not have the tradition of teaching specific subjects, and research shows that many preschool staff members are unsure about what teaching technology should include and how it should be taught. Therefore, with…

Svenningsson, Johan; Hultén, Magnus; Hallström, Jonas – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2018
The pupils' attitudes toward technology survey (PATT) has been used for 30 years and is still used by researchers. Since it was first developed, the validity of the questionnaire constructs has primarily been discussed from a statistical point of view, while few researchers have discussed the type of attitudes and interest that the questionnaire…

Haupt, Grietjie – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2018
This paper builds on two concepts, the first of which is the extended information processing model of expert design cognition. This proposes twelve internal psychological characteristics interacting with the external world of expert designers during the early phases of the design process. Here, I explore one of the characteristics, hierarchical…

Schooner, Patrick; Klasander, Claes; Hallström, Jonas – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2018
Technology education is a new school subject in comparison with other subjects within the Swedish compulsory school system. Research in technology education shows that technology teachers lack experience of and support for assessment in comparison with the long-term experiences that other teachers use in their subjects. This becomes especially…

Jiang, Hao; Tang, MingXi; Peng, Xiang; Liu, Xiaoli – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2018
The subject of design and technology was introduced to the curriculum for high schools in China 10 years ago. However, the teaching and learning of this subject have become difficult for both teachers and students because there is a lack of qualified teachers with design background to deliver this subject in a way to stimulate the learning…

van Aalderen-Smeets, Sandra I.; Walma van der Molen, Juliette H. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2018
Despite the large body of research on students' educational and career choices in the field of technology, design, and science, we still lack a clear understanding of how to stimulate more students to opt for a study path or career within the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). In this article, we outline a new theoretical…
