Şen, Güzin; Şener Pedgley, Bahar (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2019-01-01)
There is growing integration of digital technologies to the physical domain. In this process digital technologies have expanded the expressive characteristics of physical products. However, in this integration, we should also discuss the way that physicality enriches our interactions with digital systems. This paper aims to attend to this discussion through mobile listening experience and explores how embodiment of personal clothing and accessories can enrich the aesthetics of mobile music player interactio...
Enriching kindergarten learners English by using language portfolio and additional instructional materials
Zorba, Mehmet Galip; Korkmaz, Sezen (2011-01-01)
As there has been an increasing demand on language education in kindergartens, a large number of kindergartens have begun to give English language education so as to meet the demand.

The aim of this qualitative study is two-fold: (1) to reveal the advanta...
Invigorating Industrial Design Materials and Manufacturing Education
Pedgley, Owaın Francıs (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2010)
Materials and manufacturing are vitally important subjects for industrial designers, being the means by which virtual products are turned to physical reality. Historically materials and manufacturing education has been dominated by engineering approaches, which often are too technical and poorly suited to the human-centred concerns of industrial designers. For example, materials selection for product function/performance is well established, but selection for product expression/personality is underdeveloped...
Empowering technology and engineering for STEM education through programming robots: a systematic literature review
Çetin, Mustafa; Demircan, Hasibe Özlen (Informa UK Limited, 2018-10-17)
The purpose of this systematic review was (1) to synthesize findings from studies that provided programming experiences through robotics for children, between the ages of zero and eight, and for pre- or in-service teachers, of early childhood education and (2) to reveal the possible contributions of robotics programming for the integration of technology and engineering in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. As a result of search and review processes, 23 research studies were i...
