Summary

This free unit is subdivided into four topics plus an end-of-unit assessment spread across roughly five lessons. It is a theoretical unit covering the latest Edexcel Design and Technology specification 1DT0. The first lesson looks at the impact of new and emerging technology on industry and enterprise before moving on to look at the effect that industry can have on the environment. The influence that people, culture and society have on product development and vice versa are covered in the third lesson. Contemporary production techniques and scales are then covered in the final lesson before students subsequently sit an assessment test comprising questions similar to those found on the GCSE exam paper.

What people say...

The units we have ordered are proving really useful and helpful with development of materials for new specs.  The Maths for D&T have been particularly helpful.

Linda Hill. Design and Technology Teacher, Coundon Court

As someone who has marked exams regularly moderates for the exam board, it is even more apparent to me how important this type of resource is. Additionally, with an ever-burgeoning amount of theory to teach, there is just not the time to produce such high-quality materials.

Tim Masters. Head of Design Technology, Blackheath High School
