Major Work Design Assignment
- At the end of the assessment each student should have a clear understanding of the piece they want to create with a lot of the information about the aspects of the piece
This task will be completed in two phases: (1) A brainstorming design (2) oral presentation.
- Each student is required to present an oral presentation to the class of their design for the major work.
- Each student is to create something that they deem to be a personally inspiring project.
- Each design piece should be able to be built by only the individual attempting the woodwork piece within the given time frame of his year 12 major work.
Each student will create a brainstorming mind map like the one completed in Task 1 using Padlet. This mind map is to show project inspiration through images, sketches and annotations. This should not be limited to the same type of furniture piece the student will be taking on in his major work. The mind map should also contain inspiration on timber species/colours, timber production technique, joinery and finishing processes.
Complete this step in Prezi:
Each student needs to analyse pieces of work which have some type of similarity to their own design. Each student should now be able to analyse past designs to a high level. Thus the ideation phase should be more in depth and critical for analysing pieces of work. It should display positives and negatives of the project like done in Task 1 & 3. The students must also discuss the joinery and finishing techniques (Similar to Task 2) and how they are incorporating it into their own design.
Each student's will use the Web 2.0 Technology: Prezi (http://prezi.com/), to present their Talk.
Due date: Each student will have a week from the completion of the Three in class Tasks.
