Product Design | Parent support required for creating the Chromebook sleeve

Product Design | Parent support required for creating the Chromebook sleeve

Dear Parents,

For the summative assessment of the current unit in Product Design students are designing a personalized sleeve for their Chromebook. They have completed the first 2 steps of process of designing the sleeve. Wherein they analysed the existing Chromebook sleeves and conducted primary research for understanding the preferences of children from the same age group. And based on these findings they created different design ideas of how their personalized sleeve should look like.

As a product designer they are ready with their final design and now it’s time for them to turn their creative ideas into reality for which they need your support. In order to do so you will have to take your ward to buy required materials and get it stitched by a tailor (preferably someone who can sew a bag/laptop cover). There your child will explain his/her design to the tailor. It is preferable if students carry a notebook and a pen along with them so that if at all the tailor suggests any changes in their design which are a must then they will note them as they are required to present the changes made in the design with a valid reason.

A list of possible fabrics which can be used for making the sleeve and other important details are already shared with the students on Google classroom. All the students are expected to get the finished Chromebook sleeve by 15th March 2018.

Seeking your support!

Students have to directly assemble in the Maker’s lab.

The LEAP session in the previous cycle catered to the strand of ‘Multiple intelligence- Math smart’. Students here applied their knowledge of odd and even numbers, prime numbers, multiples, factors and divisibility rules.

Materials provided : –

 This game was played in pairs and each pair was given a set of four dice and 2 different colour counters for both the players and a game board.

 How to play the game:-

-Each player takes  turn to roll the dice and adds them up. The player then chooses one  classification hexagon on the board which matches the total  rolled. He covers this    hexagon with one of his counter.

– If a players  does not find any hexagon which matches  his total ,he passes the dice to      his partner.

– The game finishes when all the hexagons are covered.

– The winner of the game is the person who manages to cover most of the hexagons.

Students were able to play this game independently and enjoyed it  as they were thorough with all the math concepts catered in this game.

Glimpses of the session..
