Teaching and Learning • What do students need to know in order to be successful?
Step-ups 3. 5 Demonstrate how technological modelling supports technological development and implementation • Understanding the role technological modelling has in making informed and defensible decisions • Analysis of technological modelling practices used to address a range of competing and/or contesting factors • Critical analysis of the role technological modelling has had in the development and implementation of an outcome
Demonstrate understanding of how technological modelling supports technological devleopment and implementation • explaining how functional modelling is used to test competing and/or contestable factors and inform decisions during the development of a technological outcome ² Competing – strive for superiority, try hard, to strive against another or others to attain a goal ² Contesting – debate, dispute, challenge, compete, the best
Competing / Contestable These factors arise from things such as differing • moral, • ethical, • cultural, and/or political views including the way they relate to issues such as Think about • sustainability, if/how these things relate • globalisation, to your study • democracy, • global warming/ climate change
Additional Activity • Look at the diagrams – what modelling might have been used – what could have been competing and/or contestable factors
Use this if you are having difficulty
Curriculum Level 8 requires you to understand: Technological Modelling Students can: • explain the role of technological modelling in making • informed, responsive and defensible design and development decisions • informed, responsive and defensible manufacturing decisions • discuss examples • to illustrate a range of technological modelling practices that have been undertaken in situations with competing and contestable factors • critique examples of technological modelling practices • in terms of how well they address underpinning factors.
Key Words • Go back to the standard. • What is the key vocab? Activity 3 • Definitions • How many definitions can you write down in 5 minutes? You need to understand the key words
Do this if you need to understand more Product Failures • One way of understanding competing and/or contestable factors is to look at brand failures. http: //brandfailures. blogspot. co. nz/2006 /11/brand-idea-failures-corfam. html Ø As you read the article ask yourself – what are the competing/contestable factors the technologist had to deal with? Ø Discuss with a group – how could these have informed the decisions that were made?
Corfam – competing/contestable? competing/contestable • Synthetic substitute – is it superior? How? • Non-animal resources – ethics, sustainability, why is this important? • 47% market women – • Not flexible vs comfort – contesting factor so should they have continued? • Throwaway pair - sustainability, is this ethical
Make sure you can • Explain critical role functional modelling in allowing informed decisions • Identifying competing and/or contestable factors that needed to be addressed • Explaining defensible decisions & how modelling supported decisions made
