Over Easter we also added a TechDoodle and #Thinkdo resource to our shop on the wider impact of designing and making with a total of 35 handouts across both resources. These can also be downloaded from our BoydCreate shop (look out for the wider impact on designing and making heading). 

Wider impact of designing & making

Since our new BoydCreate shop website was launched just after Christmas 20 free resources have been added, a large percentage of which are editable. That’s over 250 slides or pages of resources all for free. Our old www.julieboyd.co.uk website is also still going strong and is always being added to with videos and weblinks linked to learning, as well as curriculum planning.

Thank you to anyone who has chosen to pay for any of the free resources they have downloaded. The resources take a lot of time to produce and aren’t funded by anyone and even small donations help us continue this work. Adding a paid for resource to your shopping basket full of freebies is also another way of supporting our work.
