Design and Technology Stage 6 Second Edition
Design and Technology: Stage 6 Second Edition has been fully revised and updated to offer the most current content available for the NSW Syllabus. It also includes a new Teacher Resource Package to offer even more valuable classroom support for teachers.
- Fully revised and updated content encourages students to explore the latest production processes, engage with both popular and emerging technologies, and examine the impact of technological activity as they produce creative design solutions.
- New case studies – including innovations in sustainability such as non-animal meat and the Seabin project for cleaner oceans – help students place design in context, understand the design process, and explore emerging technologies.
- Practical and theoretical activities develop students’ analytical skills in evaluation, planning and decision-making, and provide additional guidance as they prepare for their major design project.
- Valuable time-saving planning, classroom and assessment support for teachers in the Teacher Resource Package include suggested responses to textbook activities and workbook tasks, PowerPoints and teaching plans.
