This is an interesting article. If Daniel Kahneman's 'dual-process' theory is correct, it could be a useful way to think about technology education (and maybe even education in general). Maybe what teachers should be consciously focusing on is helping students develop their ability to access and use 'system 2' vs. the much easier and instinctual leap to 'system 1'. Of course, schools already do this--we wouldn't be able to teach students without doing it. Making it an explicit goal though might be helpful in guiding the curriculum.
