Our Projects and Design team have done some cool stuff for Rastrick High School and their Design & Technology (DT) collaborative exhibition. You can take a peek at http://design2010.co.uk
This is the third year the project has run – the site shows off students’ D&T work from all the Calderdale secondary schools and is open to the public. Visitors can view students’ work by key stage, including a photo and description of what the student has created. Visitors can then post comments against each exhibit and then vote on their favourite work from each key stage.
The project is live for two weeks, and ends with the exhibits who have the most votes getting a prize.
A really strong way of engaging the kids, their parents, and creating competition between a number of schools, which is bound to increase motivation (although I know nowadays competition isn’t supposed to be allowed until you leave school ;0)
