Bartholomew, Scott R.; Ruesch, Emily Yoshikawa – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2018
Research has shown that once a potential solution to a problem has settled into one's mind, it can be difficult to break from the original idea and move in a different direction (Cardoso & BadkeSchaub, 2009; Jansson & Smith, 1991). When designers are given examples (whether as models, photographs, sketches, or drawings), they often fixate…
