Dixon, Raymond A.; Johnson, Scott D. – Journal of Technology Education, 2012
A cognitive construct that is important when solving engineering design problems is executive control process, or metacognition. It is a central feature of human consciousness that enables one "to be aware of, monitor, and control mental processes." The framework for this study was conceptualized by integrating the model for creative design, which…

Fantz, Todd D.; Katsioloudis, Petros J. – Journal of Technology Education, 2011
In order to effectively teach engineering, technology teachers need to be taught engineering content, concepts, and related pedagogy. Some researchers posit that technology education programs may not have enough content to prepare technology teachers to teach engineering design. Certain technology teacher education programs have responded by…

Haynie, W. J., III – Journal of Technology Education, 2003
Undergraduates were divided into four groups: (1) no study questions, multiple-choice test (n=71); (2) no questions, take-home test (n=71); (3) questions, no test (n=70); and (4) no questions, no test (n=67). The take-home group scored worst of all on novel information. They seem to have focused only on the required answers. (Contains 25…

Lewis, Theodore – Journal of Technology Education, 1999
School subjects are not the same as the forms of inquiry that produce their underlying knowledge base, and the existence of conceptual structure does not automatically legitimize subjects. Beyond process and content approaches is the central ethos of a subject; for technology education, tools, materials, and ideas are at the core and students are…
