ELMER, R., 1994. Probing understanding: mapping learning. IDATER 1994 Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
This paper builds on and extends the paper presented at IDATER93 titled Probing Understanding - An Ethnographic Study Of Student Designing by the same author.
The methodology employed previously has proceeded and with the same aim; a description of the development of concepts of design and technology in students. The purpose of this paper is to explore some aspects of the process of this researcher making meaning from data. It will describe the continuing use of an ethnographic methodology; specifically how analysis is proceeding through the use of an analytical tool that has evolved from the data. Some sections from individual interviews are analysed and the next stage of the study is indicated.
