AKHTAR and PRICE, 1996. Effects of ethnicity in learning preferences in technology. IDATER 1996 Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
The research investigates learning preferences in Technology in a sample of the pupil population (N=90) from two schools in the Greater Manchester conurbation. Students' multiple choice responses to a series of nine questions regarding their preferences related to learning in technology were analysed. Within this investigation it is noted that very few significant differences can be shown between the South Asian and European (white) populations. Significant differences were found, however, between the groups regarding preferences for the practicality of Technology work and the teachers' opinions of their creativity in lessons.
