This paper reports two exploratory surveys focused on the pupils’ spontaneous knowledge about the functioning of technological systems. The qualitative and quantitative data analyse highlights their general unawareness; their reasoning from the material components; their lack of vocabulary to explain how the RFID Pass or the Interactive White Board work. The questionnaires and interviews reveal available cognitive supports in order to develop pupils’ understanding. The paper suggests didactical and pedagogical orientations for designing school activities.
