Really useful flight path which i use in booklets to help students map out ideally where they should be working at throughout each progress update or data capture and through each year from 7 to 11. Students can see visually whether they are below their expected target or above throughout the year.
They can either start off with their start point and map out the way forward, i find this particular method works best for new year 7’s mainly as most will have never done technology at primary school, so we complete a baseline test upon entry. From this baseline test we will grade them either base developing, securing or enhancing. We can then work forward from there using the year 7 tracker.
Year 8 onwards will be given their school targets based on the previous years data, we can then work backwards to see where they should be aiming for per data capture. I’ve attached an example as an image.
Can complete a new tracker at the start of each new rotation if you have separate booklets or if you use single booklets complete after a single data capture. The one i have uploaded works on a 4 progress update / data capture cycle per year.
Hope it helps
Really simple, multi-functional verbal feedback / manufacturing log booklet which i use for all KS4 classes.
Having recently moved to a more instant, verbal form of feedback, i needed somewhere the students could keep a log of what i have said during lessons, and somewhere for them to reflect on what i have said making targets for the future.
As i give feedback, the students will write down all i say in green pen (our own school policy). They will relay it back to me, so i know they have understood then go and write a personalised target in purple pen (again school policy).
I have noticed a massive difference in the students understanding, mainly because of the instant nature of the feedback and clarification. Also, the time i have saved in writing feedback is huge.
I have also put in a manufacturing log so students can write in their booklets their own differentiated targets per lesson, dependent on where they are in a particular practical task.
Hope it helps.
I have seen some great ideas to aid annotation for design work in product design, so i decided to have a go at my own annotation support resource.
This resources allows you to put the frame around your design idea, then, using the annotation guidelines around the outside, annotate your product ideas in as much detail as you can.
The green text is definitions of what each heading is (ACCESSFM based) and the black text underneath is key question to ask yourself about your product, these should be answered using your annotations.
The middle insert is firstly cut out
The A3 sheet is then laminated
The middle is then cut out again
This will allow the resource to be used multiple times as it has been laminated and protected.
Hope this helps
Great little A4 / A5 booklet which i use for keeping track of which pieces of machinery i have demonstrated to my students. There is a space for me to date and sign when they have been shown too.
What i like most is the space for the students to put a confidence rating via the emoji symbols. This allows me to help those students who are feeling less confident when i see how they feel in their booklets about a specific machine. Its perfect for those who struggle with speaking out in class if they’re struggling too.
The booklet will stay with the students throughout and they can update as the get more and more confident.
Current set up more for Product Design, but easily edited for Textiles or Food and Nutrition.
Hope it helps . . .
