Speaking and listening through D&T projects Virtual Client Interview 1 Donkey Sanctuary
Ages 11-14 Years
First published 2014
This programme, supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, aims to improve the speaking and listening skills of Key Stage 3 students through delivery of a D&T project. For full details of the project go to the Improving speaking and listening skills through D&T projects page.
Many schools find difficulty getting people from the community to come into school to interact with students, but research has shown that having a ‘real’ client to design and make for helps students develop successful products and develop effective peaking and listening skills. These three virtual interviews in PowerPoint format contain videoed answers to question that might be put by students in interviews. They contain information that students can use to help them design appropriate solutions to the problems presented in each scenario and help give authority to the project. Students will be able to identify better with the client and associate their designs with a real-life situation.
This interview is with a manager at a Donkey Sanctuary who is looking for a fund-raising opportunity by selling a product for the charity. Possible D&T products could come from product design, textiles, electronics, food or resistant materials.
The PowerPoint file and folder of video clips should be placed in the same folder for the files to play successfully.
