Question posters for D & T analysis

Question posters for D & T analysis

A series of posters i designed to prompt learners when analysing problems and design ideas - largely in KS3 but useful for display in any D & T workshop. The characters are graphic representations of famous designers - they match a set of table top info cards that i also display - and will hopefully upload when time allows. There's 6 in all. I designed these in my 3rdyear of teaching to help lower ability groups progress, and got very favourable comments on there display in my room last OFSTED. Hope they prove as useful to you too.

Health & Safety Films

Health & Safety Films

The Napo series of films are produced in computer graphics. They feature characters in the world of work, faced with safety issues. The main character, Napo, and his partners express themselves in wordless language. Their stories have an educational value. They provoke questions and stimulate debate on specific aspects of safety at work. Sometimes they provide practical solutions or lead to them. It is this blend of education, cultural neutrality and humour set in a cartoon style that gives the 'Napo' series itsidentity.

How to make an African plastic bag football - recycling

How to make an African plastic bag football - recycling

These sheets have lots of pictures showing how to make one of these footballs. Anyone who has been to a country in Africa would have seen these being played with by kids all over the place. This links in well with the Africa Cup of Nations, but also with recycling and African topic studies.
