Product Design 2018

Through learning and undertaking activities in Creative Computing and Technology, the aim is for young people to become:

  • successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society

The importance of Creative Computing and Technology:

  • To combine practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make products and systems that meet human needs.
  • Learn to use current technologies and consider the impact of future technological developments.
  • Think creatively and intervene to improve the quality of life, solving problems as individuals and members of a team.
  • Working in stimulating contexts that provide a range of opportunities and draw on the local ethos, community and wider world, students identify needs and opportunities.
  • Respond with ideas, products and systems, challenging expectations where appropriate.

They combine practical and intellectual skills with an understanding of aesthetic, technical, cultural, health, social, emotional, economic, industrial and environmental issues. As they do so, they evaluate present and past design and technology, and it uses and effects. Through design and technology students develop confidence in using practical skills and become discriminating users of products, applying their creative thinking and learn to innovate.
