Industrial technology

  1. 1. Industrial Technology Multimedia Kelly Bauer/ Michael Ienna
  2. 2. Accessing usApologies:   Theres a lot of Google presentation  Were very blunt        Twitter:   @eduienna  @shortcomp  Youtube  eduienna  shortcomp  
  3. 3. Why did we introduce Multi!   FCC: !   IT subjects in the school decreasing !   Option for “less academic students” originally, but this changed !   Attract girls!   PMHS: !   No problems with Girls !   Huge IT focus in school
  4. 4. Resources    ESNET: Engineering Studies Network  IndTechMulti: Google Group  CSTeachers: Yahoo GroupIIATE Industrial Arts Association Online (  Delicious/Diigo bookmarks for tutorialsYoutube/itunesUTextbook:   Rochford (Industrial Technology) is mainly for timber  Multimedia Making it Work th Ed (Tay Vaughn) - pretty goodAmerican resource  
  5. 5. Inservices!   Every year IIATE runs an Industrial Technology Seminar Day. It is excellent and you can take students as well. Each attendee gets a booklet and lunch.
  6. 6. Beginning the Year in IndTech•  What if you have another IndTech in your school            e.g. Timber?   o  workingtogether on assessments, marking and resources.  Remember this is ONE cohort!  •  Make sure you get the ranking right in assessments (teacher communication is important here)  •  Need consistancy with tasks/marking.  General tasks not multi specific.  Look at how the BOS do it - range of skill, depth of skill.  •  Multiple major works - no double up of content (art, DT etc.) Double dipping is bad.  
  7. 7. Different approaches to curriculumstructure: FCC!   ne week at the beginning of the term for industry study O • Students work out of a booklet based on CSU online ( • Lots of essay writing in year 11  !   -2 weeks learning programs   1!   major project a term 1 • Photoshop and Flash • Website/Video • Game Design • Multi content is integrated   
  8. 8.  o  Yr 12 broken into one theory lesson a week    focus on ind study first then mm content    lots of sample q’s and papers    lots of essay writing    There is no provided Multi trial paper you will need to create your own.  o  1st assessment industry study of a business  o  Remaining assessments build towards major work  o  T4 and ¾ of T1 spent on folio
  9. 9. Alternative Structure: PMHS•  pbl (integrated theory/practical projects)  •  Propose a product and support with business plan. What are the things that will effect the development of your business, prototype of the product.  •  Students choose which area to focus on with negotiation from teacher. (Building skills of every student)  
  10. 10. •  Practical lessons based on needs to know (when student needs to)  •  Lots of pre-videoed content. Pre-prepared resources.  •  Student summaries (Group summaries using Google Docs)  •  Lots of sample essay writing in year 11. Homework, sample answers, marked answers.
  11. 11. Year 12 PMHSMark major projects as an assessment (show progress)   o  Marking components of the folio/prac NOT the whole thing  •  Cannot use the BOS criteria for this.  •  Theory lessons every week. Lots of reading/video / answering questions homework.  •  T4 spent on folio (folio segment due early)  •  Finish project early.  •  Revision of exam content prior to Trial exams  •  Lots of practice exams
  12. 12. Portfolio Requirements•  Now 80 pages (be familiar with BOS rules)  •  Specs including fonts sizes and use of computer operations  •  Students must customise the process to their own project   o  using data from Yr11 will not cut it  •  Management of folio is much easier with a desktop publishing program  •  MUST show written, graphical communication   o  graphs, charts, drawings, annotations
  13. 13. Practical Requirements•  Software to use? (DET have Adobe Suite, YAY!)   o  Industry standard software when you can   o  Very expensive course to setup and maintain   o  Animation, video editing, 3d, image manipulation, audio editing     students can use software the school does not have with permission from the teacher  
  14. 14. •  How the project is marked  •  What are acceptable projects?    o  ace manual  •  What you need to consider in choosing projects  •  How to increase marks for projects that are low level  •  How to get great level projects (website, adding media)  •  Managing 100 different projects/software (good luck!)
  15. 15. Practical Requirements Cont...•  Look at range of depth and skill   •  Allow students to pick their own projects with neogtiation  •  Spend the last term adding stuff to students projects - or cutting out   o  enhance projects that are lacking  
  16. 16. •  No1 rule - project must be completed (and look finished)   o  betterto do a table and one chair thats finished than a table and six chairs that are not.  •  Construction steps showing their skills (proof)  •  Keep a log of students work  •  Make sure you have seen them compelte the majority of work
  17. 17. Exam Analysis •  Exam structure   •  What do students need to know?   •  Building exam knowledge   •  Lets some make some exam questions!   o  essay questions   o  multimedia questions   
  18. 18. Most Important Things•  Team building  •  Tutorials  •  Teach them  •  Allow them to make mistakes/changes  •  Take ownership of their work   •  Chose a major that interests them - avoid forcing them  •  Collaborate with other IndTech teachers  •  Know your stuff - high level of technical knowledge  •  Be honest with students - if you dont know a program tell them!
