Getting unstuck: Information problem solving in high school STEM students and evidence of metacognitive knowledge

  This presentation reports the initial findings from an ongoing empirical study which aims to evaluate how students seek, use, and think about information when they encounter problems in the design, construction, and delivery of digital technology projects. It explores how a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum, centred on improvisational problem solving, may have implications for student metacognitive knowledge development, and whether that development is evidenced in student information behaviour.
