And, of course, these mechanical constraints have no relevance for computer keyboards which use an entirely different implementation to link keystroke inputs to graphic outputs. The data revealed a surprising pattern in the selection of building bricks as well as features of car design across consecutive building sessions.

Like the use of scaffolding in construction, the notion is that a set of temporary supportive practices and artifacts are put into place to facilitate the construction process, until the project is self-supporting or completed. This includes focus on such diverse elements as: quality of service, safety, convenience, visual appeal, cleanliness and comfort.
The Persistence of Memory When looking over the results, a set of stepwise progressions shows up across numerous measures. We identify these patterns as “path dependence” (David, 1985; Liebowitz and Margolis, 1995; Garud and Karnøe, 2001b) demonstrative of rapid conventionalization. Levy, G. (2012). Judaic Technologies of the Word: Cognitive Perspectives on Judaism and Jewish Cultural Formation. Activities are based on the EV3 Core Set available from LEGO® Education. (Careful, other EV3 kits may not be the same! This special bundle includes everything needed for the project, and then some: the kit, software, rechargeable battery, a storage bin, and live support. Be careful! The first car established something like a “phylum” which consolidated in each successive session.
The similarity of cars within each session, quantified as the average number of pieces shared, did not differ as a function of building session. Hobson, R. P. (2002).
