Designing, making and programming in Design Technology in Primary Schools
|Course code||Keystage(s)||Presented by|
On this course, you will:
• Discuss the importance of the iterative process of designing and making in DT
• Look at the suitability of different methods of communicating ideas such as discussion, annotated sketches, exploded diagrams and computer-aided design
• Discuss the use of electrical systems to create products in DT
• Examine practically how programming can be used to monitor and control products
• Highlight the key concepts of computing that are often covered in these types of DT projects such as selection, algorithmic thinking and inputs and outputs.
Computing has deep links with Design Technology. Design Technology provides real, practical contexts for pupils to apply their programming skills. DT can also help reinforce other key areas of computing such as computational thinking.
Please can delegates bring their own laptops with the free Crumble software downloaded on them. The software can be found at:
Crumble kits will be provided for delegates for use on the training day.
This course can be run as a staff training session. For more information please contact Robert.Musker@lancashire.gov.uk.
