Abstract

The introduction of new and emerging technologies in the National Curriculum and GCSE specifications may have filled some with dread and left you wondering ‘how do I teach this?’ Instead of the fall-back position of a theory lesson, in this article we explore how design fiction could be the answer.

This is the first of two articles about using design fiction to teach new and emerging technologies. In this first article, I explain what design fiction is, give examples of how it has been used and a guide for using it. The second article is written with Natalie Cooke, an NQT, who has used design fiction in her lessons to teach year 9 students about robotics and artificial intelligence.
