    Design & Technology Stage 4 & 5

    Content Learning Outcomes Student Activities

    The Concepts of Design Students will 5.3.1

    - Discuss what is Appropriate Technology and how it can Students learn about:

    - nature and definitions of design, technology and be used to help the environment.

    appropriate technology - Learn about the impact of greenhouse gases emissions

    - interdisciplinary nature of design which draws on from our current technologies

    disciplines such as mathematics, sciences, fine art and - Explore the work of current environmentally friendly

    humanities designers, and the factors that influence their work - interrelationship of design with technology - Investigate innovative Australian eco-technologies such - human, technical and environmental factors such as as wave power & the solar sailor & the Cent-a-meter as

    appropriateness of technology choices and design use these as case studies

    decisions, social and environmental sustainability, - Look at the wave power prototype in detail and discuss

    resource choices and availability what disciplines Tom Denniss used in his design process

     - Look at which technologies were used for both the wave

    power plant prototype and the solar sailor Students learn to:

    - define design, technology and appropriate technology - Define which ways the designs in the Centre help with

    - identify the dependencies of design on other disciplines environmental sustainability

    when designing solutions - Put into use various appropriate technology energy

    - analyse a case study that demonstrates the sources such as solar, water, wave and wind

    interdisciplinary nature of design - Investigate alternative methods of producing energy and

    - analyse a designed solution and identify how it was compare the technologies and impacts between renewable

    affected by the technologies and tools used in its and non-renewable energy sources and their advantages

    development and disadvantages

    - analyse and report on the factors that affect the decisions

    taken in the development of design ideas and solutions

    Students will Design Processes 5.4.1

    - Examine how and why community attitudes are changing Students learn about:

    - opportunities for new and better solutions in regard to the environment - requirements of end users and stakeholders - Recognise how new technologies are changing the way

    - appropriate technology we live, the products we use and how we use the

     environment

    - Discuss what Appropriate Technology is and how it can Students learn to:

    - identify opportunities for new and better solutions help the environment

    - identify the needs of the end users and other stakeholders - Investigate examples of appropriate technology - analyse costs and benefits including social, financial and - Learn about ways students, schools, communities and

    environmental government can help reduce environmental impacts - evaluate the long-term and short-term consequences of - Look at the triple bottom line principle and how business

    particular design ideas and government are trying to balance these components

    - Investigate the impact our current lifestyle is having on

    the local and global environment, and how utilising green

    technologies and altering lifestyle habits can improve our

    environment

    Students will Activity of Designers 5.2.1

    - Look at a number of innovative designs within the Centre Students learn about: 5.3.1

    - the work of current designers across a range of settings that focus on industrial, commercial and residential use 5.3.2 such as commercial and industrial - - Learn about the impact of greenhouse gases emissions 5.4.1 - ethical and responsible design from our current technologies - preferred futures - Explore the work of current environmentally friendly

    - innovation types and examples designers, and the factors that influence their work - impact of technologies on environments - Explore how designers have used appropriate technology

     in their design
