We are delighted to bring you a free teaching unit to inspire and engage students to follow a career in D&T.
We have teamed up with the Design Museum to produce a series of six lessons that allow students to experience the freedom of a truly iterative approach to designing. While reducing the rigid structure of a linear design approach, this unit adds enough scaffolding and idea-generating suggestions to enable innovation and inspiration to flow freely. Students are encouraged to design and model in a way that suits them best, using strategies that work to avoid design fixation, resulting in inspiring outcomes.
What's included in the toolkit?
The currently available units have been written to satisfy the new National Curriculum for Design and Technology. They are designed for teaching at KS3 but individual lessons in some units may also be appropriate for teaching Key Stages 2 or 4, particularly where Year 10 students may not previously have been exposed to certain topics.
