Thank for using this site - When this site started in October 2007 I decided it was an information only site for my students and we continue within the Design Technology department at Sha Tin College to use this as our primary teaching tool until recently with the introduction of Moodle in our school. I am now returning to using Wikispaces as my own teaching platform, particularly with the introduction of Textiles Technology.
For all those people who have asked to become members I do apologies, however I shall be adding discussion forums and surveys in the coming academic year to encourage some participation and collaborative dialogue.
This site evolves each year - and as of August 2011 we switched our GCSE courses from EDEXCEL to AQA - I shall continue to update content and add to it but I shall leave EDEXCEL pathway open to students and teachers who continue to teach this syllabus and copy and update the material to suit AQA on a second pathway - so during late July 2013. Ms Czirok - Applied Learning Coordinator, Sha Tin College.
