What’s the role of a designer?

The PowerPoint presentation and linked activities provide D&T teachers with an opportunity to highlight the different values and beliefs that designers may hold.

Through the activity of ‘Belief circles’ – pupils can engage in exploring their own values about the responsibilities of designers and companies too.

The PowerPoint highlights the work of two designers Emily Cummins and Steven Hunt, both of whom have chosen to be involved in the development of technologies that ‘make a ‘difference to people’s lives’.
