I am a flight instructor at abc flight school, and on jun/fri/00, I was up doing air work with my student. On first touch and go we landed fine, with a green light on gear indicator. On the roll the student grabbed the flap handle, called out, 'flap handle idented.' I said 'flap handle verified,' and he moved the flap handle up. Then he put gear handle in the up position instead of pushing the carburetor heat in. Nose gear collapsed, while main gear remained down. After skidding to a stop, I called up tower and told them what had happened. They said that a fire truck was on the way. Fire truck arrived 5 mins later. We tried to lift the nose up and extend the gear, but the gear doors were crushed and didn't open. The firefighter got some tools out and broke off the door. After that we were able to pump the gear down in a locked position. A tug was then used to pull the plane off the runway and to the parking area. Visual damage was bent propeller, bent exhaust pipe and crushed gear doors.
