Heuristics and CAD modelling: an examination of student behaviour during problem solving episodes within CAD modelling activities.
Design activities typically involve and culminate in the creation of models representative of new ideas and conceptions. The format is often dictated by the specific discipline, with ideas in design and technology education ...
Spatial cognition in engineering education: developing a spatial ability framework to support the translation of theory into practice.
(Taylor & Francis Online, 2019)
A substantial degree of empirical evidence has illustrated the correlation between spatial skills and performance in engineering education. This evidence has been foundational in the construction of educational interventions ...
The validity and reliability of online testing for the assessment of spatial ability.
The assessment of spatial skills offers significant insight into cognitive capacities associated with disciplines such as graphics, engineering and design. The operationalization of this assessment is typically seen in ...
Illustrating educational development through ipsative performance in design based education.
The Technology subject in general post-primary education is unique based on its conception and treatment of knowledge. The task specific utility of knowledge is emphasised and at the same time, in reflection of the breadth ...
Investigating the use of spatial reasoning strategies in geometric problem solving.
A core aim of contemporary science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is the development of robust problem-solving skills. This can be achieved by fostering both discipline knowledge expertise and ...
Visualization, inductive reasoning, and memory span as components of fluid intelligence: implications for technology education.
The philosophy and epistemology of technology education are relatively unique as the subject largely focusses on acquiring task specific relevant knowledge rather than having an explicit epistemological discipline boundary. ...
