    Double-Level Languages and Co-Operative Working.Mike Robinson - 1991 - AI and Society 5 (1):34-60.
    Four criteria are discussed as important conditions of successful applications in Computer Supported Co-operative Work (CSCW). They are equality, mutual influence, new competence, and double-level language. The criteria originate in the experience of the International Co-operative Movement. They are examined and illustrated withreference to eight contemporary CSCW applications: meeting scheduling and support; bargaining; co-authoring; co-ordination; planning; design support and collaborative design.

  2. Engineering Literacy in High School Students.Bruce Kenny & Mike Robinson - 2003 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 23 (2):95-101.
    This article reports pretest and posttest results of the infusion of engineering principles and design into an existing ninth-grade integrated science class. The results indicated that more knowledge of engineering makes attitudes of high school students more favorable toward engineering. The results of infusing engineering topics into an existing science curriculum were also compared with an earlier study of a formal 3-week engineering unit taught to ninth-grade students in another high school. The results of that comparison indicated that a formal (...)

  3. How Do 4th Through 12th Grade Science Textbooks Address Applications in Engineering and Technology?Mike Robinson & Pamela Cantrell - 2002 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 22 (1):31-41.
    Selected elementary and secondary science textbooks were examined for their treatment of engineering and technology relative to the national science and mathematics standards in the areas of connections to technology and society.Elementary textbooks were found to have significant connections between science concepts and technology and society; however, the treatment was often superficial and/or indirect.Activities were mostly teacher-directed with little opportunity for designing, making, and testing things.Connections to mathematics concepts were rare.Secondary textbooks made use of extensive technology in lab work and (...)

  4. Robotics-Driven Activities: Can They Improve Middle School Science Learning?Mike Robinson - 2005 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 25 (1):73-84.
    This study used case studies from three science teachers to compare three groups of students studying Grade 8 physics using Robolab instead of traditional lab materials. The three teachers represented an English as a second language class, a regular class with many English language learner students, and a Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement class of afterschool volunteer students. The teachers responded to nine questions regarding issues such as how robotics addresses the middle school physics standards, promotes inquiry learning and science literacy (...)

  5. Student Enrollment in High School AP Sciences and Calculus: How Does It Correlate with STEM Careers?Mike Robinson - 2003 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 23 (4):265-273.
    Many high schools offer students the opportunity to take advanced placement courses in many subjects including science and mathematics. Studies have shown that students who take these classes are more likely to succeed in college and that failure in engineering education is strongly correlated to deficiencies in mathematics and science. This article presents the background of AP classes and their impact on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics career choices of college students. The results of this study confirm that students who (...)

    Triggering Artefacts.Preben Mogensen & Mike Robinson - 1995 - AI and Society 9 (4):373-388.
    The paper presents a general critique of the use of conceptual frameworks in design, illustrated by the well known synchronous/asynchronous, co-located/non-co-located framework. It argues that while frameworks are a necessary and inevitable starting point for design, the business of tailoring and adapting them to specific situations need not be ad hoc.Triggering artefacts are a way of systematically challenging both designers' preunderstandings and the conservatism of work practice. Experiences from the Great Belt tunnel and bridge project are used to illustrate howtriggering (...)

    Hoarding All of the Chips: Slot Machine Gambling and the Foraging for Coins.Mike James Ferrar Robinson - 2019 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 42.
    Predictions made by the “incentive hope” hypothesis account for overconsumption in unpredictable food environments. However, when applied to uncertain gambling situations, there are several areas where this theory falls short. Most notably, it has trouble explaining why, in slot machine gambling, players are motivated by extended play to spend time trying to resolve uncertainty, rather than hoarding monetary gains.

  8. Comparing Environmental Science Literacy Among Education Majors and a National Sample.Mike Robinson - 1998 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 18 (4):240-246.
    The responses of a convenience sample of 83 secondary preservice and preeducation students in three university classes were compared to each other and to a national sample of 1,492 adults on a national poll of science knowledge. The results of the data analyses using simple ANOVA and two-tailed t tests indicated that preservice secondary science teachers in a secondary science methods class are significantly more science literate than preeducation majors and the na tional sample. They were not significantly more science (...)
