Teacher Instruction:


Watch the following tutorial where you will be talked through what you need to do


  • You need to include primary and secondary sources

  • You must talk to the end user of the design

  • Research should be relevant

  • You need research areas that directly influence your problem area but also areas that may be of use.

  • You must collect all the details of the environment it will be used in.

GAP Attainment:

Use the following table to understand what potential grade of work you will produce. Try to aim for the top grade!
