Calling all DT specialists - CAD?!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by bluerubies1, Jul 29, 2015.

  1. Hi all,

    We are trying to develop and refresh what we use for CAD in DT and have gone from fairground rides, to using Minecraft to create biomes, however I want to use a program that is skills-based and as Minecraft isn't a CAD program, I feel we need a change for next year.

    Any suggestions on any great programs for CAD, so we can use it to fit into our curriculum for next year?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not a DT specialist, but we used Google sketch up this year to design houses in computing, but also designed storage boxes for our DT/topic. Easy to navigate and the kids picked it up really easily :)
  3. Great - I have used it once before but just feel I need to improve my own skills this Summer before attempting to teach the children. Thank you :)
