Abstract

This study (begun August 2011 and scheduled to complete January 2012) is designed to determine how an instructional technology course incorporating an engineering design framework with digital fabrication activities influences preservice elementary teachers' attitudes towards teaching mathematics and science content, and their understanding of how to use the engineering design process as a pedagogical method. This study is also designed to determine what obstacles and difficulties arise in this context that will need to be overcome so that an engineering design framework with digital fabrication activities can be used as a pedagogical method. This study will compare a teaching with technology course utilizing an engineering design framework with digital fabrication activities to another section of the same course that utilizes a media cycle framework (Bull & Bell, 2005) that does not incorporate digital fabrication activities.
