Product Design - Idea Generation, Sustainability and Target Market

Pupils' love being creative with this hands-on project. Students are tasked with up-cycling a waste Coca-cola bottle to create a new product for a particular target market. In this series of lesson, students are introduced to the benefits of up-cycling in relation to impact on the environment/sustainability. They then draw their own semantic mind-map to come up with product ideas of their own (creative strategy) for a certain target market. They then apply one or more of their ideas as an initial sketch. Resources have clear success criteria and peer assessment. Lesson plan is also included for further clarity. Introduction (fertile question) Class discussion Semantic mind-map task Sketching.annotation Task Peer assessment Plenary/review Optional extension tasks (rapid-prototyping, dragons den style critique) Activities should be spread over 2 lessons If you enjoyed this lesson, please see the other lessons in this or other Product Design series/SOW (where the full iterative design process is covered).

Upon completion of their research, groups will create a television advertisement to persuade others to visit their country. Discussion questions are provided in both English and Spanish, to allow the opportunity to have a dual language conversation in your classroom. The Spanish option can be edited out. Research will require access to a source for gaining information. Effective online sources include The World Book Encyclopedia, the Britannica Encyclopedias, or the online tool CultureGrams. If these are not available to you, another online option is Google’s search engine for students, www.safesearchkids.com. You will also need a source for students to create and edit their videos. If iMovie or Windows Movie Maker are not available to you a free online video editing option is WeVideo. If this is not an option students can present their commercial orally instead of on a video.
