Lesson 8: Design Briefs

Lesson 8: Design Briefs | Technologycurationproject | Scoop.it
Tegan Andrews's insight:

The site gives clear instructions on how to write a design brief that will be effective in the classroom. If the design brief is not effectively written it will lose the authenticity and students and teachers can be hindered. This resource targets the students use of problem solving skills and allows students to practice multiple developing skills that connect with design technology.

I think this is a really good idea as it gives students the chance to design and manage the classroom that they are always working in. It is also a good idea to give children an authentic task so that they can really experience the project they are given as it provides a form of engagement and a sense of purpose to their activity.

Another fantastic example of design brief in the classroom targeting primary school.

 

It pays attention to differentiation into the design process and creates extension activities for those students who finish fast.

Technology—Lesson 1—What Is Technology?

Tegan Andrews's insight:

For this resource I would only use lesson 1 as the other lessons are irrelevant to the topic. Lesson one could be used as an introductory lesson/activity. It will assist teachers with understanding what their students already know about technology and what they don't know and where technology can take them.

Design a Package

Design a Package | Technologycurationproject | Scoop.it
Design Technology - Get the children to look closely at packaging, and then design their own.
Tegan Andrews's insight:

Another useful resource - links closely to maths (area, perimeter). Student's will be able to use high order thinking skills when designing an appropriate packaging for food. They will be able to practice their working out with formulas and create a prototype packaging with construction paper/card.
