One issue with research on how students learn using new technology is that it is often cocncerned with a specific (and sometimes narrow) topic - and so not clear how applicable it is to other domains. This paper discusses research in two rather different domains: novices learning programming and school pupils interpreting cartesian graphs. We discuss the findings in each domain but our main focus is to examine the extent to which general principles and issues apply across both domains. FInally we discuss some of the implications of our research for isntructional design.
