Art and Design Technology
Design and Technology offers the children a practical context to learn about their world and how things work. It involves close examination and disassembly of artefacts [models] from a variety of times and cultures, together with the opportunity to develop design and construction skills, thus nurturing creativity and innovation.
Children learn about the techniques of design through:
identifying needs and opportunities
generating a design proposal
planning and making
evaluating, refining and planning for future action
