Bowen, Bradley; Williams, Thomas; Napoleon, Larry, Jr.; Marx, Adam – Journal of Technology Education, 2019
There is a national conversation about a secondary teacher shortage and the lack of qualified teachers in the classroom. Over recent years, there has been a rise in the number of alternatively certified teachers to fill these positions. This is particularly true in the field of career and technical education. However, there is a debate on whether…

Dixon, Raymond A.; Bucknor, Jason – Journal of Technology Education, 2019
This study explored the use of heuristics in the design space by novice and expert engineers in the initial ideation of a design solution. Verbal protocol analyses were conducted with four engineering students and four professional engineers as they generated ideas to solve a design problem. Overall, both experts and novices used various types of…

Subasinghe, Chamila T. – Journal of Technology Education, 2019
Entry-level technology studies in architecture often baffle first-year university students, and academic staff in turn tend to resist teaching foundational studies in the technology of design (ToD). ToD has often been considered "high risk," as evidenced by a high proportion of dropouts and retakes, and has been deemed the least…

Bartholomew, Scott R.; Moon, Cameron; Ruesch, Emily Yoshikawa; Strimel, Greg J. – Journal of Technology Education, 2019
Research on children's experiences with designing has emphasized cognitive processes, self-efficacy, and outcomes related to designing. However, efforts have been limited towards identifying approaches children use while designing and making decisions related to design. This study, which incorporated a qualitative analysis of children's design…

Lawanto, Oenardi; Minichiello, Angela; Uziak, Jacek; Febrian, Andreas – Journal of Technology Education, 2019
Within the self-regulated learning literature, motivation is considered to be an essential feature of students' self-regulatory processes. Additionally, task affect (i.e., personal objectives and task value) is thought to influence students' self-regulatory processes; insufficient task affect may lead to failures to self-regulate effectively. In a…
