  3. 3. A recap of the Design Cycle –Investigate –Plan –Design –Create –Evaluate
  4. 4. Investigate The investigate stage consists of: • An introduction to the Unit • Research on the problem • A design brief • A design specification • A test plan • An evaluation of your performance in this stage of the Design Cycle
  5. 5. Investigation Introduction Start with the Problem Write a clear statement of the problem – this is often given by the teacher. • In this case, it is the task you have been set. Your problem is that you need to create a poster suitable to advertise the school X-Factor event. • You should write more detail than this. Consider what else you need to achieve – you need to advertise the event, catch people’s attention, make the poster suitable for the event, meet your end-user’s requirements. • You should reflect on how you think you will be able to achieve these things.
  6. 6. Introduction continued You also need to write: • How the problem relates to you (on a personal level) • How the problem relates to society (consider what type of society this will affect) • How the problem links to the Area of Interaction
