    • To learn the design process as it applies to technology and our environment.
    • To initiate or enhance student's understanding in a variety of technologies.
NOTE: There is a high demand for skilled workers in trades and technologies!
 
 
 
Areas Explored Include:
    • Safety
    • Design
    • Electronics
    • Woodforming
    • Plastics

Drafting & Design
The Current Drafting & Design courses include practical work which is undertaken in the school workshops.

Rationale states: “A technologically literate person uses tools, materials, systems, and processes in an informed, ethical, and responsible way and students should develop, reinforce, and apply physical skills as they carry out technological tasks using tools, equipment, and materials correctly, efficiently, and safely”

Health & Safety Requirements: “Safe work practices and procedures, and creating an understanding of what is required for a healthy work environment, are absolutely essential. As students begin to work with tools and equipment, safety and practice procedures must be introduced and reinforced throughout. Correct safety practices must be established as soon as students begin their studies in technology education and must be maintained throughout the curriculum”

IRP Prescribed Learning Outcomes: “Apply safe work habits in accordance with established regulations, including WCB and WHMIS regulations”;

  • “Provide students with the task of creating 2D geometry from 3D models and vice versa “;
  • “When students create 3D virtual models, these should correspond to preliminary sketches and design brief specifications and display careful work and attention to detail”;
  • “Have students use 2D graphical, 3D modelling techniques, and technical visualization as part of a design process”;
  • “Have students produce a complex 3D model.”
Course Expectations General
acad Students are expected to:
  • be punctual and ready to begin class when the bell rings
  • bring any equipment needed for class (notebook, pen or pencil, a high density disk)
  • ask permission to leave the room for any reason
  • take responsibility for the station they are assigned
  • leave any pirated/illegal software at home
  • take home and have signed a computer licence
  • complete ALL assignments. Failure to complete all assignments will result in failure of the course
Attendance & Lates
  • Late: bring a late slip from the office/teacher if not a regular late. The time missed may have to be made up outside of class time.
  • Absence: students are responsible for all notes/assignments/tests covered during their absence.
  • Missed tests: make-up tests may be written if you were absent for medical reasons, other acceptable reasons, or at the discretion of the teacher. Be prepared to write a test on the day that you return to school. Missed tests can be written after school or at lunch, but not during regular class time. Please see the teacher on the day you return to school to find out what you missed. Students who establish a pattern of missing tests may be denied the opportunity to write make-up tests.
  • Late Assignments: the late penalty increases with the number of days after the due date the assignment is handed in. Students who are absent for medical reasons, other acceptable reasons, or at the discretion of the teacher, will be given an extension on assignments.
  • Participation: Participation is a very important element of the course. Marks are awarded for participation and if students are absent they are not participating in the lesson and will lose marks. Students may negotiate to make up for lates and absences.
All students must apply safe work habits in the workshops in accordance with established regulations, including WCB and WHMIS regulations
