Design Technology with Mr Doig (Design and Science Specialist)
2022 will certainly be an exciting year for the Design & Technologies workshop at Cottesloe Primary School. The D&T program integrates the STEM curriculum to give students a unique hands-on learning experience.
Students in years 2-6 engage in one or more model-making projects over the course of the year. Each project centres around Technologies and Science Contexts as its inquiry direction, while utilising process and production skills and the General Capabilities to take students through the design process.
The detailed design of these projects has undergone years of development and modification by Mr Doig to ensure students have access to the latest technology in the elaborate world of modern manufacturing.
At Cottesloe we aim to raise the profile, knowledge and integrated use of ICT and STEM skills across the curriculum.
We support teachers to develop and embrace digital capabilities, and effectively integrate these technologies into teaching and learning, providing authentic opportunities for students to grow in an increasingly complex world.
Our school is resourced to provide access to an increased number devices/technologies for students to use as a tool for learning.
Importantly, we aim to build ethically responsible students of digital technologies and provide them with the knowledge of how to engage safely online.
