DesignClass | Design & Technology Scotland
Okay, I know I have been bad at updates. To be fair, this has been the most challenging term in my 15-years teaching. With the sheer volume of marking, moderation and verification, I have been struggling to create many new resources. I have lots of 'bits' of projects to finish, but haven't had the time to progress.
Finally I can turn my attention back to making resources. I noticed I had created a lot for Graphic Communication recently, so wanted to make some stuff for practical aspects of our courses.
As always a huge THANK YOU to 'Coffee Supporters'. Without you, I would need to close this site.
The updates for July 2021. This will be updated on an ongoing basis:
Birdfeeder Project (Broad General Education):
Design & Manufacture
I have started adding resources for a small metal/plastic tea-light candle holder
This is old favourite project - the Desk Monster! A simple brief of creating a monster-themed desk ornament that holds at least one pen or pencil. Pupils are given both a wooden block (in this case 50x50x50mm, and a strip of acrylic (50x120mm). After much iteration with foam and cardboard, pupils move to their final designs.
I will be posting this as a task in the BGE section of the site in the coming months.
