MYP Technology Requirements: Course Hours<br />Minimum 50 hours/year per subject for all students in Years 1 –5<br />** Due to some academic requirements, some students are not in a Design course, but will be exposed to Design Technology through integration. **<br />
Our Model for MYP Technology Instruction<br />Computer Technology + Design Technology= Combined Technology<br />
At Canadian Academy: <br />Hybrid Approach<br /><ul><li>Design Technology Course – (35 hours) in
Focus on the whole design process rather than the product
ICT (Information Communication Technology) integrated in all classes
Teaching of skills such as: researching (accessing information), word processing, creating presentations, video editing, etc.</li></li></ul><li>Using the Design Cycle as an Approach to Learning<br />INVESTIGATE<br />DESIGN<br />PLAN<br />CREATE<br />EVALUATE<br />
Example Problem:<br /><ul><li>Guided – How can I create a fast solar powered car out of recycled materials?
Open– How can I organize myself better?</li></li></ul><li>MS DESIGN LAB<br />
