Design Waves
A series of teaching resources exploring influential design movements and the context in which they emerged.

First Published 2016
Ages 14-18

This set of six PowerPoint based resources is intended to provide KS4/5 students with a background knowledge of different design movements, the context and conditions from which they emerged, examples of their output and the influences they have had upon other designers and movements in the 20th and 21st Centuries. Some of the movements are more closely aligned with the arts but have nevertheless had considerable influence on design and technology and can be used to help students understand the contexts in which designing takes place and inspire them to develop individual work of their own.

Each PowerPoint contains information on the leading figures in the movement; the political, cultural, economic and technological context of the period in which it emerged; a summary of the movement’s ideas, influences, output, and the legacy as both artefacts and inspiration. Each contains suggestions for further activities based on the movement’s features.

Teachers are encouraged to adapt the PowerPoints and notes to the needs of their students and curriculum, or may use them as summary background information for a period in history and the products of that period. The resources include multiple links to websites where further information can be found if required.

"Nicely laid out and clear, the slides are easy to read and the structure allows progress, developing an understanding of the movement and its impact upon the world."
