Jewellery, and Creative Gift Item
Students are provided an opportunity to explore a variety of materials when undertaking two major units of work. Each unit will require students to research, design and use technical to construct practical solutions. They will be involved in a variety of activities that require them to develop mock-ups, and models, and/or prototypes of final product outcomes.
- Critically analyse their own and others' past and current planning practices in order to make informed selection and effective use of planning tools.
- Use these to support and justify ongoing planning that will see the development of an outcome through to completion.
TP: OUTCOME DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION
- Critically analyse their own and others' outcomes to inform the development of ideas for feasible outcomes (conceptual design and prototype).
Undertake ongoing experimentation
and functional modelling, taking account of stakeholder feedback and trialing in the physical and social environments.
Use the information gained to select, justify, and develop a
- Evaluate this outcome's fitness for purpose against the brief and justify the evaluation using feedback from stakeholders.
TK: TECHNOLOGICAL PRODUCTS
Understand how materials are formed, manipulated, and transformed in different ways, depending on their properties, and understand the role of material evaluation in
determining suitability for use in product development.
TK: TECHNOLOGICAL MODELLING
- Understand that functional models are used to represent reality and test design concepts and that prototypes are used to test technological outcomes.
NOT: CHARACTERISTICS OF TECHNOLOGY
- Understand the interdisciplinary nature of technology and the implications of this for maximising possibilities through collaborative practice.
- Demonstrate skills in, and understanding of, fundamental drawing techniques to present visual information
