The Age of the Machine - Metallica - 'Spit Out the Bone' Music Video

The Age of the Machine - Metallica - 'Spit Out the Bone' Music Video

Compiled entirely of found footage, my tribute to Metallica's earth tremoring 'Spit Out the Bone' depicts the rapid evolution of the machine age. This music video is essentially a chronological montage of historical and iconic imagery from archive footage and documentaries. It shows how industrialisation has developed from the 19th century into the information era and beyond. It covers the steam engine, Henry Ford's Rouge factory complex, WWII aircraft, nuclear weapons testing, early computing and the digital frenzy that we now endure! This definitely isn't something for everyone but I'd hope it would be a good introduction to these subjects for any of those part-time students full-time heavy metal enthusiasts out there! Disclaimer: I do not claim copy write ownership of this music or any of the original video clips used here and this is not the official music video.

Scales of Production 9-1 new spec Design Technology

Scales of Production 9-1 new spec Design Technology

I have created this resource to use alongside the new Design Technology 9-1 to cover the various types and scales of production. The power point I have created is over 30 slides long and you can change / adapt to suit your specific classroom needs. In the power point we cover areas such as Methods for manufacturing, Lean manufacturing, Jigs and fixtures, Templates and patterns, Steam Bending Machines, One off, Batch, Continuous, flow diagrams, Automated large scale production including advantages and disadvantages. I really find this power point useful and I hope you do as well.

MP3 Speaker Project - Powerpoint to lead through the whole project plus student template Product Des

A comprehensive powerpoint to lead you through an MP3 speaker project. Originally used successfully for controlled assessment at GCSE but can easily be adapted for a shorter/longer project with older or younger students. Also contains a student template for the project which can be adapted also to meet the needs of your students. Can also be used to teach a range of design strategies as students are lead through creating designs using different approaches. Speakers use electronics kit from Rapid Electronics.

Design Technology Pro-Desktop tutorial activity CD rack / case.

Design Technology Pro-Desktop tutorial activity CD rack / case.

Pro/DESKTOP CAD/CAM Task This section assumes the CNC manufacturing machine is the TEP milling machine, although the process is relevant to a wider range of machines. This CAD/CAM tutorial assumes some prior knowledge of Pro/DESKTOP to complete the design. A tutorial for novice users of Pro/DESKTOP called Architectural Solutions to CAD/CAM is available from the TEP website www.tep.org.uk. Conventions: This tutorial uses abbreviations to explain protocol and functions within Pro/DESKTOP. RC = Right Click LC = left click Tip: = short cut or quick key function

Developing Creativity through Self Directed Learning in Design Technology

Developing Creativity through Self Directed Learning in Design Technology

I wrote this resource / booklet some time ago as part of CPD to understand how creativity can be fostered through self directed learning in Design technology. This resource is 20 pages long giving examples of creativity in the DT classroom and how to harness this alongside student self directed learning. The aims were: o Developing a model of learning and teaching in DT that explicitly develops Self Directed Learning enhancing creativity. o Support heads of Department to become more effective in their role as leaders of learning in the subject, creating and managing an independent learning environment. During this phase we worked collaboratively with departments to promote independent directed learning leading to creativity in the classroom. To assess the impact of the project, a number of data sources are being drawn from including staff and student questionnaires and department student voice. This is a great teachers resource to develop and enhance their CPD in creativity within Design Technology.
