Welcome to design evaluation
Creativity and deeper thinking skills are big areas for development in education today.
As a teacher of art and design I believe evaluation is one of the most important skills in my subject. It is key to students being able to think more deeply about their work and develop their creative outcomes. However it is not an area that all students find natural or easy to do.
I have developed a range of teaching resources aimed specifically in helping students to evaluate. Firstly students need to understand specialised language related to Art and Design and secondly to be able to apply this language to evaluate the work of others and their own work.
The resources include a textbook that can be used in many art or design related courses and is aimed specifically at course content required for students aged 14-18. The book is accompanied by an educational application that teaches and reinforces the same principles.
