FASCIATO, M., COLEMAN, J.M.B. & MARTIN, M., 2000. Technology insight: virtual visits to industry using the Web. IN: Kimbell, R. (ed.). Design and Technology International Millennium Conference. Wellesbourne : The D&T Association, pp. 53-59
The paper describes the philosophy and structure of a new Web service for technology education that is being
developed by the authors. The fundamental concept is that the site allows pupils and teachers to ‘visit’ industry and to
learn how products are designed and made.
Each ‘visit’ focuses on a particular product and tells its story through the people involved in its production. The ‘visit’
is complemented by ideas for follow-up activities in schools and hotlinks to other relevant resources on the Web.
