When generating ideas to solve design problems, Design & Technology (D&T) students working on their own may not fully benefit at the problem identification and ideation stages in the design process . At times, their ideas are limited in variety and lacking in exploration to adequately propose suitable ideas that meet the user’s needs and the design specifications.



This presentation aims to share the experience of carrying out an eduLab project between the project teachers from three Singapore secondary schools and the officers from Educational Technology Division, Ministry of Education.



The innovation draws on studies in Knowledge Building (KB) to guide their students to generate ideas, build-on, and improve their ideas (So et al., 2010; Zhang, Hong, Scardamalia, Teo, & Morley, 2011.) In addition, the works by Hong, Zhang, Teo, & Scardamalia (2009) and Zhang et al. (2011) inform the teachers on the significance of using scaffolds in designing lessons that guide students to generate ideas in their D&T lessons and to collaboratively comment on each other’s ideas to improve their initial ideas with a digital tool, and to support the adoption of KB. Specifically, the innovative lesson design framework facilitates teachers’ efforts to design learning activities, student participation structures, and the social and cultural norms in the classroom that use technology to support students working with ideas (Kapur & Bielaczyc, 2012).



The practice gives students opportunities to be exposed to other perspectives and thus encouraged to be more exploratory in the ideation stage. Students have demonstrated that meaningful comments help them to address their learning gaps.
