Design & Technology (D&T) education in KC aims to nurture in our students a way of thinking and doing – designerly dispositions which are inherent in design practices – through designing and making. The designerly dispositions are defined as:
1 . Embracing uncertainties and complexities.
2 . Being cognisant of and resolving real-world, ill-defined problems.
3 . Having a relentless drive to seek out how things work.
4 . Engaging the use of doodling and sketching, and 3D manipulation of resistant materials as a language for visualisation, communication and presentation.
Lower Sec Programme
Our lower secondary D&T programme emphasises the following:
1 . Thinking through sketching to generate and to develop design solutions.
2 . Exploration and experimentation of ideas through mock-ups to allow students to seek a practical and appropriate design solutions.
3 . The making of prototypes as a cognitive and hands-on endeavour.
