Design Technology

With specific links to the DP curriculum for design technology (e.g. Nobel Laureate David Politzer’s discussion of the importance of human factors and ergonomics in banjo design and renowned acoustician/violinmaker Joseph Curtin’s reflections on how violin design can be improved), the majority of Ideas Roadshow’s design technology resources are motivational and contextual in nature, potentially serving to spur students on to a particular direction for their design project, Group 4 project, or literature-based extended essay in design technology.

Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal includes a wide range of resources to explicitly integrate TOK into your lessons, including our TOK Connections Guide for Design Technology.
