Year 10 Textiles, 10Art, 10 DVC or 10TEM would be beneficial due to the design aspect of these courses
In 2023, this Class and Course is part of the National Pilot for the new NCEA changes that start in 2024. It is a priviledge to be ahead of the game. As part of the Pilot, students gain credits in these new standards. In 2022 Level 1 Textiles was part of the mini Pilot lead by the Ministry of Education. This is a continuation of this introductory stage.
The student focus during this course is:
To understand and follow the Design Thinking Process
To develop understanding for the processes of manipulation and/or transformation to create an outcome
To use Feedback (Korero) to refine an outcome and inform the 'fitness for purpose' of the outcome
To gain confidence in reflecting and evaluating an outcomes 'fitness for purpose' through manipulation and/or transformation to an outcome
To gain confidence in reflecting and evaluating the application of sustainable practices in the development of materials and processing technology design
To apply sustainable practices and making relevant refinements to enhance the sustainable practices to a technology design
Semester Topic - Identity - Hoodie
Cover one external and internal Achievement Standard
92012(internal) - Develop ad Materials and Processing outcome for an authentic context considering fitness for purpose - Topic - "Identity"
92015(external) - Select and test materials and techniques for a feasible Materials and Processing outcome
Semester Topic - Upcycling - Recycling, repurpose, reuse
Begin the next two Achievement Standards. Again one external and one internal.
92013(internal) - transform, manipulate or combine different materials to develop a Materials and Processing Technology outcome
92014(external) - Apply sustainable practices to a Materials and Processing design
