Learning objects Invictus Games Sydney 2018 – Design and Technology – Stage 5

TLF ID M024952

How can we make our contemporary world more inclusive? This Stage 5 Design and Technology module, Build a better world - investigating inclusive and accessible technologies and spaces, explores inventions and architectural designs that seek to improve access for those with disabilities throughout their everyday routines. The link between technology and inclusion is explored in order to answer the fundamental inquiry question: How can we foster more inclusivity in our contemporary world? Students will undergo a research project in which they investigate the benefits and limitations of two inventions that improve access and inclusion in a range of spaces, including sporting facilities. This will culminate in a project-based task in which they design, market and create a prototype of their own inclusive invention. This resource is also downloadable as a SCORM file: the downloaded version will only work if you upload it to a webserver, such as Moodle or Canvas.
