Engineering BTEC Level 2 - Unit 1: The Engineered World - Bionics

(0)
A lesson all about the applications, advantages, and disadvantages of Bionic eyes Prosthetic Limbs Mechanical Hearts/pacemakers Breast Implants Cochlear Implants The first pages are to encourage debate and to classify the pictures and also helps the teacher to gauge the level of prior knowledge in the room (lots of the information will overlap with you top set Science students, if you have any.) The presentation is designed to raise some important issues about disability and health in relation to the applications of bionics. (Might be worth preparing the LADS for a serious discussion, especially when it comes to breast augmentation and cancer.... You could always create new slides on artificial windpipes instead but I fancied a challenging debate and not a lesson where issues such as disability, cancer, deaf/blindness and injury caused through war etc. became topics of banter.) There is then a group task, each group gets a fact sheet about one of the five suggested bionic applications and another sheet with questions that they need to answer and present to the rest of the group. I'm going to give my A2 sugar paper, marker pens and 20 minutes. There's no plenary, I think it'll be a push to get through all five presentations in one lesson. I might use the following lessons to produce a "How much can you remember?" Mindmap. Will being delivering this lesson soon so will be able to give better time/activity guidance. No worksheets, just an editable powerpoint.
