DESIGN LANGUAGE
Command of design language can be
demonstrated in two key ways in
students’ work:
•
by the ability to employ design
language in the process of their own
designing as they:
annotate their developmental work ,
discuss and justify their ideas and
decisions ,
explain their solution

•
by the ability to articulate their
thoughts and offer informed responses
and opinions as they analyse and
critically evaluate the work of others

Lots of examples to help your students
learn the Language of Design
