Wall to Wall Design provides teachers with an opportunity to explore issues surrounding the appropriate design and application of technology in the building of homes in both Kenya and the UK. The resource pack uses the IT Kenya's Masaai housing project as a practical case study, where women are responsible for the planning, designing and construction of improved housing. Teachers are presented with a wealth of activities that encourage students to draw parallels between approaches to housing development in both Kenya and the UK; explore values and issues which influence design and technology choices; learn about sustainable approaches to building techniques by looking at structures and materials; engage in a range of focused practical activities, enabling students to have an appreciation of what sustainable technology means in practice.
