Explaining Relevant Implications (Achievement)

You need[2] to describe[1] what the implication is and then given reasons proving why this is a relevant implication for your outcome[3].

Evaluating relevant implications and end-user considerations (Merit)

This is where you critically analyse[4] (investigate all pros and can and draw a conclusion supported by evidence) how you will ensure[5] that your design[6] addresses (covers) the implication to ensure that it meets the requirements of the implication.

You also need to consider the end-user and what they need in the same way (this doesn’t count[7] as one of the three implications).

to do this you need to consider the positive and negative impacts of your outcome on the implication.

Then write a summary weighing up these points and demonstrating how you will or have minimised and negative aspects of the implication and included or enhanced any positive aspects of the implication.

For example with future proofing you could minimise a negative impact of a print media outcome by laminating the posters that are displayed on a wall as this would increase their longevity. A consequence of this is that they are less environmentally friendly.

Terms definitions
2. need. An identified requirement of a person, group, or environment[13]. A need is identified from an issue[16] and sits within a context[17]. Technological practice[8] can be undertaken in an attempt to meet an identified need.
3. outcome. Products and systems developed through Technological Practice[8] for a specific purpose. A technological outcome is evaluated in terms of its fitness for purpose[9], and can be described by their physical and functional nature.
4. analyse. This involves the breaking down or deconstruction of data[18] and examination of the separate parts. When analysing students can identify patterns, trends, relationships, and connections; and synthesise these understandings into explanations. Students should have access to a range[19] of data including digital outcomes[10], testing[14], designs, development, research, maps, graphs, diagrams, tables etc. from which to […]
5. ensure. Check that something is there or included
