KEY CONCEPTS, KEY FOCUS and IMPLICATIONS for TEACHING & LEARNING of Technology through the RNCS


Grade 5

Investigates:


  • background

context to situation (list advantage / disadvantage of solution to people)

  • Existing

products – identify some design aspects

science process skills (if appropriate)

Systems & Control:


  • conversion

of energy from a chosen source to mechanical energy (movement)

  • Input

- Output


Impacts:


scientific developments & technological products

(Identify positive & negative effects on people / environment)


Designs:


Design brief

  • possible

solutions (linked to design brief & specifications and/or constraints.)

  • choice

of solution with reasons

  • chosen

solution developed further

Processing:


  • Using

Forming, Shaping & Conditioning techniques to transform materials into products



Biases :


technological products & services

(Describe consequences of lack of access on certain groups)

Makes:


Planning

Materials list

Tools list

Neatness, safety, material use

Structures:

  • Types

of structures.

  • Relationship

between materials & structures.

Indigenous Technology:

technological products

(Explain the adaptation over time and among cultures)

Evaluates: – with assistance

  • identifying

Strengths and weaknesses of: Product and of plan of action

  • Use

criteria for evaluation

  • suggestions

for improvement / modification



Communicates:

  • 2D

(1st ) *enhanced sketches / drawings (colour/ shading/ rendering)

systems diagrams (input, process, output)

  • notes,

labels, dimensions

SA drawing conventions (for above)

Appropriate use of Technology to present information
