On the BfB Wiki I have published a resource for use by teachers to help with projects for designing and making- using the BfB projects on the wiki. The Scheme of Learning is designed around a 20 hour project (allowing time for flexibility)
Note. The SOL is “generic” most of the project ideas on the wiki can be used as the context for the designing and making activity. For a first time the best projects to use are http://wiki.bitsfrombytes.com/index.php/MP3_Design_Project ; http://wiki.bitsfrombytes.com/index.php/Clip_It_%26_Keep_it_Safe ; http://wiki.bitsfrombytes.com/index.php/Mobile_Mate ; or more ideas can be found in http://wiki.bitsfrombytes.com/index.php/Additional_Design_%26_Technology_Projects .
For Teachers in the UK the project is linked to….
* Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS)
* UK National Curriculum for D&T “Levels”
Teachers outside the UK may find these useful anyway!

I hope this helps teachers who are always “busy people” with their lesson planning… and of course helping students to use BfB 3D printers in their lessons.
