Using New Technologies to Improve GCSE Grades.



This session should give you ideas for using new technologies
 within your teaching, which should motivate your students
  more and help them achieve their potential exam grades

 Research has shown that using ICT in teaching does have a
  positive effect on student motivation and achievement.
Definition: “New Technologies”
Any means of communication other than paper
and pen. For example….
• Software programmes
• Internet
• Audio
• Visual
• May require digital equipment
• Should promote independent learning
Has using any “New Technology” made an impact on the quality of
your students work?

Or

What type of “New Technology” would make a difference to your
students attainment?

WHAT IS YOUR D&T DEPARTMENT ALREADY USING?


                              Often used to export work to laser cutter.
                              Good for producing nets and technical drawing.
                              Can also design interesting pattern fills very easily
                              Often not used to its full potential

EMBROIDERY
Potential drawbacks for CAD/CAM through embroidery.
                                    •Software – check that it is suitable for your
                                    needs. Will it only work on certain models?
                                    •Cost of machines – often will do huge amount of

                                        £4495.00
What software do I use to design original patterns/logos?

  Usually a specific software package is linked to the make of the machine but
  now it is possible to export the design as a generic file e.g. JPEG so it could be
  used on other makes of machine.


                                    Janome’s Digitizer software: £849


                                                                    Brother PE £949




These are the top of the range options – do you need
them? Get a demo either on line or in a shop to decide
which type of software you will use best.

          Set up costs are a lot more than dye sublimation.
          Contact R.A. Smart for up to date details.
DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTING
  In the classroom, this equates to putting sublimation ink on paper
  using a digital printer and applying heat and pressure using a heat
  press to sublimate the image to the chosen substrate (end product).




www.isub-education.co.uk is a good starting point for more information and prices.
DO NOT BUY OFF E-BAY AND ALWAYS BUY THE PRINTER AND THE INKS FROM THE SAME

TIP: Look at the starter packs as they offer the best value.
Go for at least A3 printer.
Gel printers are more expensive but much better in schools
How does Sublimation printing improve GCSE results?
 • Gives students ownership of their work.
 • Can design their own fabric and actually use it on their coursework
 • Develop problem solving skills when considering type of fabric to use, size of
   pattern repeat and size of heat press bed.
 • Produce relevant printing tests on different types of fabric, at different
   temperatures/timings.
 • Easy to modify their ideas and try different ideas.
 • The above can all be easily recorded as part of controlled assessment folder.
 • Relatively inexpensive process that be used to transform remnant fabrics/up
   cycling old ones.

DIGITAL PRINTING ONTO COTTON
                 CHROMOBLAST
• Same principle as dye sublimation printing onto polymer
  based materials: i.e. indirect printing method onto paper
  then heat transferred to fabric.
• Separate printer is required as the inks are different – not
  disperse dyes. You cannot alternate between the two
  systems on one printer!
• Benefits: soft touch to fabric (no hard vinyl feel to print), no
  weeding out of fine details (when using fabric vinyls), not
  messy, no ink wastage – only use what you need, can use
  existing heat press.
• Drawbacks: designed for cotton so limited range of use
  (compared to general dye sublimation), need to buy new
  printer as the inks are specially designed to form chemical
  bond with cotton.

How do you actually get to use it in students’
work?
Is it easy to get hold of ?
Do you have to buy it in large quantities?
Is it too expensive?
E-Textiles to the rescue!
 •   Allows students to make interactive textiles products
 •   Inexpensive – you don’t need large quantities per student
 •   Makes use of textiles components as switches e.g. metal zips, poppers
 •   Easily buy conductive thread, fabric and Velcro from educational suppliers.

USING THE INTERNET

• PODCASTS – little specifically on GCSE Textiles but might find more
  regarding general textiles. Learn how to create your own!
• YOU TUBE – great for quick visual information on all sorts from
  techniques to yarn production.
• SPECIFIC SEARCHES – give key words to get students started. E.g. E-
  textiles and see where it takes them. Make their own presentation on
  what they discovered.
• SPECIFIC WEBSITES – e.g. Cute Circuit, Instructables (with key words
  also here)

  Appeal to Generation Z and how they access information.
  Encourage them to get motivated and want to find out more.
SCHOOL VLE
Many school websites have been transformed recently to hold information on
different layers: for public, for parents, for pupils/staff.




                   •   Exemplar work
                   •   GCSE specification
                   •   Revision planning
                   •   Exam dates
                   •   Supporting materials for different topics
                   Think about what format you would use for this:
                   • Power Point slides
                   • Photographs as starting points
                   • Video clip

  • 19. EMBROIDERY Potential drawbacks for CAD/CAM through embroidery. •Software – check that it is suitable for your needs. Will it only work on certain models? •Cost of machines – often will do huge amount of different stitches/functions e.g. 8 different buttonholes. DO YOU NEED THEM? •Time – only one person’s design at a time. A 10 minute design turns into 30 minutes very quickly when consider setting up and stopping to change colours. •Threads – need a wide choice in stock in order for students to achieve their design. Money tied up in stock, could be put to better use? Logo showing variations in stitch direction and density
  • 20. EMBROIDERY Be realistic and use your budget wisely •Avoid paying for expensive sewing/embroidery machines when you can get a dedicated Janome 300E embroidery machine for much Embroidery machine less - approx. £939 •Be brave and consider a part exchange on the embroidery machine that’s hardly ever used for a couple of simpler ones. •Make friends with a local dealer – after sales MC11000 service/advice is as important 120+ built in designs 300+ stitch options as price. Edit & combine facility £4495.00
  • 21. What software do I use to design original patterns/logos? Usually a specific software package is linked to the make of the machine but now it is possible to export the design as a generic file e.g. JPEG so it could be used on other makes of machine. Janome’s Digitizer software: £849 Brother PE £949 These are the top of the range options – do you need them? Get a demo either on line or in a shop to decide which type of software you will use best.

  • 24. Direct digital printing onto fabric Bullet steamer approx. £1300 Set up costs are a lot more than dye sublimation. Contact R.A. Smart for up to date details.
  • 25. DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTING In the classroom, this equates to putting sublimation ink on paper using a digital printer and applying heat and pressure using a heat press to sublimate the image to the chosen substrate (end product). www.isub-education.co.uk is a good starting point for more information and prices. DO NOT BUY OFF E-BAY AND ALWAYS BUY THE PRINTER AND THE INKS FROM THE SAME SUPPLIER. TIP: Look at the starter packs as they offer the best value. Go for at least A3 printer. Gel printers are more expensive but much better in schools
  • 26. How does Sublimation printing improve GCSE results? • Gives students ownership of their work. • Can design their own fabric and actually use it on their coursework • Develop problem solving skills when considering type of fabric to use, size of pattern repeat and size of heat press bed. • Produce relevant printing tests on different types of fabric, at different temperatures/timings. • Easy to modify their ideas and try different ideas. • The above can all be easily recorded as part of controlled assessment folder. • Relatively inexpensive process that be used to transform remnant fabrics/up cycling old ones. Creating fabric for a small embroidered felt bag.
  • 27. DIGITAL PRINTING ONTO COTTON CHROMOBLAST • Same principle as dye sublimation printing onto polymer based materials: i.e. indirect printing method onto paper then heat transferred to fabric. • Separate printer is required as the inks are different – not disperse dyes. You cannot alternate between the two systems on one printer! • Benefits: soft touch to fabric (no hard vinyl feel to print), no weeding out of fine details (when using fabric vinyls), not messy, no ink wastage – only use what you need, can use existing heat press. • Drawbacks: designed for cotton so limited range of use (compared to general dye sublimation), need to buy new printer as the inks are specially designed to form chemical bond with cotton.
  • 28. PRINTING ONTO COTTON Chromoblast gives option to have detail around edges. Fully washable product. Investment to set up. DIGICOAT – spray that can be applied to anything which will fit under the heat press. Adds polymer based film to surface that enables “usual” sublimation printing to work. Great for T-Shirts and only £14.95! See www.isub-education.co.uk
  • 29. CUTTING KNIFE LASER Camm 1 Cuts intricate Vinyl Cutter designs Cuts vinyl, H&S – check non wovens fumes! Both give accuracy to GCSE controlled assessment work.
  • 30. Is a machine like this somewhere in your department? Is it still used – or has the laser cutter taken over? Get it in the Textiles room! Pelmet Vilene can be cut out and coloured. Basic net for a lantern.
  • 31. Incorporating “New Fabric Technology” in GCSE work. How do you actually get to use it in students’ work? Is it easy to get hold of ? Do you have to buy it in large quantities? Is it too expensive?
  • 32. E-Textiles to the rescue! • Allows students to make interactive textiles products • Inexpensive – you don’t need large quantities per student • Makes use of textiles components as switches e.g. metal zips, poppers • Easily buy conductive thread, fabric and Velcro from educational suppliers. Mini Mii toys – squeeze the phone/camera and it will play a tune and eyes flash. Lanterns made in a day by teachers

  • 35. USING THE INTERNET • PODCASTS – little specifically on GCSE Textiles but might find more regarding general textiles. Learn how to create your own! • YOU TUBE – great for quick visual information on all sorts from techniques to yarn production. • SPECIFIC SEARCHES – give key words to get students started. E.g. E- textiles and see where it takes them. Make their own presentation on what they discovered. • SPECIFIC WEBSITES – e.g. Cute Circuit, Instructables (with key words also here) Appeal to Generation Z and how they access information. Encourage them to get motivated and want to find out more.
  • 36. SCHOOL VLE Many school websites have been transformed recently to hold information on different layers: for public, for parents, for pupils/staff. • Exemplar work • GCSE specification • Revision planning • Exam dates • Supporting materials for different topics Think about what format you would use for this: • Power Point slides • Photographs as starting points • Video clip • Podcast
