Recycled Cardboard Shelf To make the brackets start by cutting 1.5” (40mm) wide strips. For maximum strength cut the stips so that the corrugations run along the length of the piece like the grain in a piece of wood. Glue (school glue) them together in an L shape.

Making A Magazine Stool Do you subscribe to a weekly or monthly magazine and you just don't know what to do with them after you've read them? At last week's P!D The Upcycle Village (which I blogged about here), we were taught how to make a Magazine Stool with old magazines!

Design and technology: changing classrooms Face-to-face teaching doesn‘t have to mean you’re in the same room anymore, or even in the same city. With the right technology and a flexibility of space, teachers are encouraged to explore, and new learning spaces are giving them the opportunity and training to do so in the right environment.

The two scenarios that were explored were “Schools Without Walls” and “A World Without Schools.”
