This project leads students through designing and making a usb night light with a laser cut card shade. These resources include a SOW covering each lesson, student booklet and accompanying powerpoint. This was aimed at KS3 but is fully editable so it could be made suitable for older or younger students. So our students didn't miss out on basic wood working skills when doing this product design rotation we included a short focussed practical task based on developing accuracy to manufacture a small boat toy.

Design & Technology Baseline Assessment Scheme of Work, Powerpoint and work booklet

(0)
I devloped these resources to use to assess the basic abilities of new students in Design & Technology. The baseline assessment can be run in all areas of technology and covers general skills like rendering, measuring, designing and the use of basic tools like scissors. Our students come from a range of feeder schools and come with a variety of different skills, this allows us to compare them easily. This sceme can be run in any of the technology areas and does not require specific materials other than the basic stationary and thin card. Included is a powerpoint that can be used to guide students through the task, a work booklet for students to complete and a scheme of work which details each lesson. Aimed to run over 4 x 1hr lessons but all resources are editable so can easily be adapted but can also be used as is.

I used this resources as a competition over a week to raise awareness of design in school, each day a different image was displayed around school and students could try to work out what it was and put in a an entry to a competition. This got students talking about design and we had some interesting follow up conversations in lessons. This could also be used as a starter activity.
