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…

Katsioloudis, Petros J.; Stefaniak, Jill E. – Journal of Technology Education, 2018
Results from a number of studies indicate that the use of drafting models can positively influence the spatial visualization ability for engineering technology students. However, additional variables such as light, temperature, motion and color can play an important role but research provides inconsistent results. Considering this, a set of 5…

Gorski, David E. – Journal of Technology Education, 2018
Technology and engineering education is filled with so many varied topics that it is almost impossible to break them into grade-level courses. As a result, courses are often mixed with all grade levels and all types of learners. On rare occasions, one course section pops into the schedule that is all one level. When this occurs, it may become…
