Last Sunday was a sunny day for a change on Anglesey so off we went out to have a mooch about with the kids. We stopped off at the local car boot sale first of all. While we were doing the “mooching” I came across a stall that was full of 1940’s 50’s and possibly 60’s print media.

I love looking at old advertisements and logo designs to see how things have changed over the course of time since print media was made possible with the Guttenberg Press.

This is a video I made whilst on school placement. I used it in a key stage 3 textiles class, but would be suitable for the ideation phase of any design and technology discipline within schools.

Its a silent video, and the idea behind it is that the class teacher would have it on loop in the background, explaining the process and then leaving it on for the duration of the video. I found it worked really well with the pupils who needed to refresh their memories a little with regards to techniques demonstrated. It also gives the pupils a visual inspirational focal point in the classroom.

Let me know what you think in the comments below.

This is the first section of my third year project. Id wanted to design something that would encourage less abled people to recycle more, plus promote independence in activities of daily living. Having begun my career out of school as a trainee nurse and health care assistant, I was able to see first hand some of the difficulties people can face when trying to remain as independent as possible in their later years. My great grandmother lived till she was 94 years young, and was a big influence in my life, both in terms of respecting elders and making the most of what you have on hand. This is where the “waste not want not” title comes from.

Id love to hear your feedback on the first part of my project. the next three will be up in the coming week!
