If you have seen my ‘about me’ page, you will know that I teach Engineering & Technology, more commonly known as Design & Technology. This means I get to share my love of design with my pupils. It is always exciting when a pupil discovers a design classic for the first time, especially when they get inspired by it.
Living in London means that I can visit the Design Museum whenever I want to. It is one of my favourite museums, and I am particularly excited that they will be moving to a new bigger building which will be opening in 2014.
The Design Museum also have an app (after all I am blogging about apps I am using in education), which makes it even easier for me to show iconic designs to my pupils.
The app is beautifully designed (but then I would expect nothing else), you can easily scroll between the different products and although there is a limited selection at the moment I am hopeful that it will expand in time.
If you want to look at a product in more detail then tapping it gives you lots more information.
I thought that looking at the Apple iMac would be the most appropriate on this blog!
It gives you lots of information, sometimes you get a video from their archive with designers talking about the products significance.
So if you’re a design teacher, or someone who is just interested in design, then I highly recomend this app.
If you want to follow the goings on at the Design Museum then have a look at their blog.
