Product Design; Guide to producing an Architectural Render from a SketchUp model using free software

Product Design; Guide to producing an Architectural Render from a SketchUp model using free software

This tutorial is primarily aimed at students currently undertaking A level Edexcel Product Design Graphic Products, AQA Product Design, OCR Design Technology and WJEC / Eduqas Design Technology. The Tutorial can also be used for any students studying Architecture or it could simply be used in any context the teacher feels appropriate to the learning of their class. The main purpose of the lesson is teach the students the basics of producing an architectural render through the sketch-up plugin in ‘Twilight Render’However, the lesson isn’t a comprehensive guide to using ‘Twilight Render’ but a quick and easy introductory lesson – in my experience (as a teacher) though students quickly master the program just by going through the basics provided in this lesson and probably won’t need to master any of the additional options to produce effect and quick renders of their work.

Control for Key Stage 2.  Resource 2 of 6.  Crumble and Crumble Playground

Control for Key Stage 2. Resource 2 of 6. Crumble and Crumble Playground

This is for Generalist Primary School Teachers to use with their classes. It's great fun. Our pupils love it! Teachers can use it to learn quickly - included are some easy to follow getting started read-me pdfsAll 'Pupil Playground' files are designed to be used 'on-screen' along with the very easy to use 'Scratch' inspired control software. The pdf is fully hyperlinked with lots of easy to follow instructions and tasks which become more challenging. (The Crumble Software is free from 4tronix and others. It does more than Scratch does with physical things!) I'm not sure how to describe this resource! It's way more than 1 lesson but not a half term's work. The whole set provides a series of units which are plenty, with progression, from year 3 to year 6.Included is an example marking ladder which could be easily changed for your specific needs.The whole set fulfils all of the Control related aspects of the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 - it doesn't cover all of 'Computing'. In more detail, it provides tons of engaging experience of three statements of 'Computing' with parts of the fifth. Also one of 'Design and Technology'. See the file 'Computing and Control in KS2 NC Match Up'.https://www.tes.com/member/SkyTeacher

2017 AQA GCSE Design and Technology (New) Specification Knowledge Organiser

2017 AQA GCSE Design and Technology (New) Specification Knowledge Organiser

This is a Knowledge Organiser that I have put together for the new AQA Design and Technology Specification. It is designed as a resource for both teachers and pupils to give an overview of everything that needs to be covered to excel in the qualification- rather than across many pages as per the specification, this quick reference guide should thus be helpful across the whole two year qualification. It is on two sides in PDF format so it can be printed as two separate posters in A2, A3, or A4 etc. Alternatively it can be printed double sided, laminated and used as a learning mat for students. One side covers Part 1 of the specification and the other side covers Part 2 and Part 3.
