Design Technology Electronic System Diagrams Design Component Information Cards and Activities

Design Technology Electronic System Diagrams Design Component Information Cards and Activities

This resource is aimed at helping students to understand how to develop systems diagrams and which components will best suit the needs of the design brief. The starter activity introduces the concept of systems diagrams and asks students to correctly identify Input, Process and Output components. The students are then given the information cards and asked to select suitable components to meet the design briefs. I created this resource having taught electronic products for years and finding that I needed a way to make the principles behind the development of systems ideas more intuitive. In addition to

Design Technology Electronics Process Components Information Cards

Design Technology Electronics Process Components Information Cards

Turn your students into independent learners with these well presented, informative information cards. Packed with information about the Transistors, Darlington Pairs, 555 Monostable and Astable, 4017b Decade counters, 4026 Decade counters, Logic Gates, the NAND gate as all other gates, Operational Amplifiers - Inverting, Non-inverting and as Comparators, and Microcontrollers. I designed these information cards to be used by students who are developing system diagrams. Students often feel overwhelmed when it comes to designing systems because they are unsure which input, process and output components to choose and they are unsure what they all do. These cards provide the answers so students can easily assess whether the component will meet their needs. Obviously the students will learn much more about the individual components along the way! Buy this resource on its own or as part of a bundle including a starter on systems diagrams, and activity where students design systems in order to meet specific design briefs and a set of Input component information cards. Output component cards will be online soon.

Design Technology Electronics Amplifier Project How 2 Weekly Guide PCB 2D Design Files

Design Technology Electronics Amplifier Project How 2 Weekly Guide PCB 2D Design Files

Everything you need to make run an amplifier project. Aimed at year 8 the PCB is made in school (circuit wizard file in zipped file). We use and MDF frame and glue the front and back into place. Unlike the kitronik version, my version has a switch and an LED within the circuit. This project in a box includes a class booklet, homework booklet, printable guide showing students how to populate the circuit and a weekly presentation that you can use to help students through the various steps. Images are used to show students exactly what they need to do. My students love the freedom of following the guide themselves. Also included is an interactive lesson about the components used in the mono amplifier. The resource includes information cards, a quiz book and a plenary.

Balloon Race Car 2D Design parts and instructions for students Year 6 - 7 transition

Balloon Race Car 2D Design parts and instructions for students Year 6 - 7 transition

This resource was created for year 6 summer school students. The file includes a 2D design file to cut the parts needed to make a balloon racer. I found that corrugated card worked better as it is light weight, although drying times are longer. I gave students the choice of using either card or plywood, or a combination of both. Great, fun activity for students. Principles of a design brief and specifications have also been included, along with some extension tasks to be completed while the glue dries.
