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…

Karppinen, Seija; Kallunki, Veera; Komulainen, Kauko – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
The paper discusses how a teaching approach, "interdisciplinary design and invention pedagogy," affected primary school student teachers' learning outcomes through the craft design process in pre-service teacher education. This study applies developmental work research (Engeström in J Educ Work 14(1):133-156, 2001; Engeström in…

Wright, Natalie; Wrigley, Cara – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Design as an overarching pedagogical framework has been regarded by some as the avenue to re-envision general education to develop capabilities required for twenty-first century citizens. However, despite the adoption of design thinking within other domains, generic design-based education for lifelong learning remains largely unexplored. A…

Svensson, Maria; Johansen, Gerd – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
In the technology classroom, practical problem-solving activities require interaction between teacher and students. To explore these interactions, we use Joint Action Theory of Didactics (JATD). Joint actions occur within a didactical system where teacher, students and content are understood as an undividable whole. Of particular interest is how…

Graff, Daniel; Clark, Mark A. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Universities increasingly incorporate multidisciplinary design projects into their curriculum to better prepare their students for the labor market. In these projects, student team members of various disciplinary backgrounds develop new product or service concepts for organizational partners. This structure enables students to learn not only from…

Buckley, Jeffrey; O'Connor, Adrian; Seery, Niall; Hyland, Tomás; Canty, Donal – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
The educational significance of eliciting students' implicit theories of intelligence is well established with the majority of this work focussing on theories regarding entity and incremental beliefs. However, a second paradigm exists in the prototypical nature of intelligence for which to view implicit theories. This study purports to instigate…

Doyle, Andrew; Seery, Niall; Canty, Donal; Buckley, Jeffrey – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
A philosophical shift in policy now situates the development of technological capability as the focus of Irish technology education. Internationally, the effectiveness of curricular reform in the discipline has previously been called to question, as the legacy of the preceding vocational craft subjects has been seen to throttle the evolution of…

Marth, Michaela; Bogner, Franz X. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Although technology determines our everyday life, many of us still have neither special knowledge nor interest. Our study focused on a reliable and valid empirical monitoring of interest in and social implications of technology by applying an existing scale to 610 participants. First, we confirmed the factor structure for the school student…

Sung, Euisuk; Kelley, Todd R. – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Design is a key element of both the teaching and learning of engineering and technology. However, the process of engineering design has yielded limited research results. This study explored the iterative design process by searching for sequential design thinking patterns. The researchers collected nine concurrent think-aloud protocols from…

Lind, Johan; Pelger, Susanne; Jakobsson, Anders – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Technology is a compulsory subject at Swedish elementary schools and, according to the syllabus, helps students develop their ability to examine different technological solutions and reason how these solutions affect society, environment, and humans. An important challenge for educational research is to analyse and understand the consequences and…

Baradaran Rahimi, Farzan; Kim, Beaumie – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2019
Adolescents develop skills and ideas from their interest-driven practices, which shape a type of literacy that may differ from the traditional ideas of literacy. This paper takes a qualitative approach to identify adolescents' activities through interest-driven participatory design. We interacted with grade 9 students at a Western Canadian school…
