We live in a “high technology society”. In simple terms this means that our way of life, our standard of living and the wealth of our county is dependent to a large extent, upon the manufacture of sophisticated products and, of course, all of these have to be designed. Today we have numerous different materials and access to an enormous range of information, knowledge and skills. Further, we have the facilities for using these resources to their best advantage to ensure that our designs “work well, look good and are safe to use”.
Clearly, designers and technologists have an enormous responsibility for the well-being of people in our society, of all the peoples of the world, and of the very future of planet Earth. When studying technology at school, you will be expected to act as a responsible designer while generating designs to solve problems or satisfy needs.
Whenever anything is made, of course, from the simplest to the most complex product, materials, components and tools will be used, and skills and knowledge will be required.
When studying technology at school, you will be expected to identify how materials and manufacturing processes have been used in existing products and to learn to use these resources to their best advantage when planning and making products yourself.
You have to learn: Vocabulary, stages in the design process, drawings, manufacturing processes, safety and health norms at workshop, and so on. (James Garratt)
