    What do people think of the three topics for the GCSE Product design course.
    Personally I think the helping developing countries is really hard. For the students at my school
    this is something which they would not able to research efectively or have much connection with the subject.
    I know of one independent school which will do lamps as usual and buy in touch sensitive switches
    for the disable theme .Great if you have the budget.

    Before the change to the new 1-9 NEA, I was teaching Technology from a Graphic Products angle and I'm having problems with the rather vague NEA contexts. Does anyone out there have any ideas or examples of how they are approaching any of the three NEA's and, like most schools, I have a very limited budget. Thanks in advance.

    We have a graphics stream and, for the most part, they are creating awareness raising/fundraising packs in association with a given charity. 2 in the product design group are making a portable water barrel, and water filtration system. Hope that helps!
