A great website for teaching who need support in including technology into their classroom. The website has ideas that can easily be used within a classroom. it also provides an area where teachers can discuss technology within the classroom.
With this website students download instructional vidoes on different elements of design. It has 35 video clips that explicitly teach construction techniques. These video would be an effective learning tool within a classroom.
A great tool for teaching students how to create programs. For it to be successful in a classroom, the teacher would need spend a few lessons explicitly teaching students how to use it. Students would also require a lesson to explore and experiment all that scratch can do.
This website is full of design brief that can easily be adapted into any Year 4-7 classroom. It provides teachers with a range of besign briefs that can be left how the are or altered to suit your classroom.
Revise GCSE Design and Technology topics including systems control, resistant materials, electronics, graphics, textiles and food technology, using example questions, mock exams and more.
This website provides students with the opportunity to revise and test design elements. It could be used either at the beginning of a unit to elicit students prior knowledge, or at the end of the unit to test their knowledge.
Excellent resources. Provides students with a hypothesis and a list of material and instruction to build leers, springs, gears etc. This could be used to allow students to explore different mechanisms they could possibly use in a design task.
This website would be aimed at year 8-9 students and it could be used for students to gather information about different elements of design. For example information on designing rooms and packaging. It is an easy to use site however the language used would not suit primary students.
This website is full of great ideas on how to effectively include technology within your classroom. It also includes case studies of different schools around New Zealand. While the New Zealand curriculum has been the focus the ideas listed can easily be implmented within an Australian classroom. I especially liked the "Ugly Creatures" design breif. Also I should mention the "Developing figurines in a Technological Products Unit" as it proved ways that the unit had been differentiated for students with special needs.
