Engineering Ethics - Exploring Case Studies

Engineering Ethics - Exploring Case Studies

This career unit gives students an introduction to the engineering ethics using a variety of case studies for student analysis. This is perfect for middle school or high school engineering, career, technology, CTE or business classes. The included PowerPoint presentation can be used by the teacher for whole class instruction, or provided to the students electronically (or as a printout) for them to review individually. Students work with a partner or in small groups to analyze engineering cases that dealt with ethical concerns. Resources for the six cases are included in the PowerPoint and as printable or digital task cards. The activity can be completed on the computer or without computer access if the teacher prefers by printing out the linked information. Students use critical thinking skills and teamwork to research and analyze the cases and then answer questions to consider the different ethical issues and choices. Then, each group shares that information with the class, encouraging further discussion and analysis. Finally, a short reflection questionnaire gives students the opportunity to reflect and analyze their learning more deeply as they consider the input from other groups and their insight on different case studies. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher & Student Resources • Introduction to Engineering Ethics PowerPoint presentation (editable) • Case Study Team Project Instructions, Expectations and Grading Rubric • Team Case Study Questions/Worksheet • Case Study Task Cards (6 different cases) • Engineering Ethics Reflection Questions (MS Word)

AQA Exemplar Folder for the new GCSE (Not Endorsed)

AQA Exemplar Folder for the new GCSE (Not Endorsed)

This is my own take on what I believe a level 9 folder could look like for the new AQA GCSE in Design and Technology. It is appropriate for the children's learning and play sample context and covers exploring a context, iterative design, prototyping and client led brief. There are 40 slides each with a commentary and a summary at the end of each A0. I have worked for the AQA for 20 years with 25 years classroom experience where many students achieved 100% for their coursework so this is based on that experience.

Design Process Journal: Great for IB Design and Design Projects

Design Process Journal: Great for IB Design and Design Projects

This is a design process journal in PowerPoint that the students can use to guide them through the design process for projects. It easily allows students to input the different steps of the design process from Inquiring and Analyzing, Developing Ideas, Creating the Solution and Evaluating. The different sections of the design process are laid out with several slides each for the students to fill out. The design process journal is also color coded to help you easily teach the concepts and the design process. This was originally adapted for an IB design class, but can be used for any type of in depth design process. This product is also in PowerPoint and can be easily edited to meet the needs of your design project.

Board Buster- Principles in Engineering

Board Buster- Principles in Engineering

Quick starter or Plenary to use in Principles in Engineering, The same concept can be easily adapted to any lesson. Students just have to answer the questions. You can change difficulties to match different colours. It encourages students to come up to he board and write the answers (if interactive board) Or students can come up with post it notes with the answers on it.
