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.…

Goktepe Yildiz, Sevda; Ozdemir, Ahmet Sukru – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
The spatial ability is defined as the combination of some abilities such as imagining the movements of objects, mental rotation, and spatial transformations. Students' spatial abilities can be enhanced through specific education programs. This study investigated the effects of engineering design-based instruction on spatial abilities of 8th grade…

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…

Bartholomew, Scott Ronald; Ruesch, Emily Yoshikawa; Hartell, Eva; Strimel, Greg J. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Adaptive comparative judgment (ACJ) has proven to be a valid, reliable, and feasible method for assessing student performance in open-ended design scenarios. In addition to the use of ACJ for purely assessment and evaluation, research has demonstrated an opportunity to identify the design values of judges involved with the ACJ process. The…

Vossen, T. E.; Henze, I.; De Vries, M. J.; Van Driel, J. H. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Research and design activities are becoming more important in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and D&T (design and technology) education. Research and design are often taught separately from each other, while in professional STEM practices, many projects are neither 'research only' or 'design only'--they are both. In…

Sundqvist, Pernilla – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Developments in early childhood education (ECE) over the last two decades have for many countries meant a change towards a more subject-oriented pedagogy in which preschool staff are commissioned to teach technology to young children. This has been proved to be a challenge to the staff. Through analysis of activities at two preschool units, this…

Strimel, Greg J.; Kim, Eunhye; Grubbs, Michael E.; Huffman, Tanner J. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Design within primary and secondary schools has been increasingly emphasized over the past decade. As a response to this increased interest, qualitative research examining students' cognitive processes involved in the practices of design has been on the rise. These studies have commonly employed the concurrent think-aloud research methodology to…
