Design Brief Templates – The workbook for students…

Choose one of the Design Brief Templates presented below for your students to work through the design process.

The content in each template is the same, only the format is different. Choose the format that most suits the way you and your students will be working. One idea would be to add them to a cloud space to encourage collaboration.

The design brief takes students through the design process and is what they need to pull all of their work, inspiration, and ideas together to be exhibited with their final product. The Victorian Schools Games and Apps Challenge sees equal educational benefits in the design process as well as the creation of the final product.

The Challenge asks for design, computational and organisational thinking. It also requires some creativity and artistry as well as a really good communication strategy. We encourage groups of students to enter. 

The templates allow for images, links to code or video, photos etc. Please ensure each group completes a design brief.
