Benchmark and design is a Learning Activity in which pupils are presented with a design task. Pupils create and refine their design brief, with a focus in the final product, and the proposed end-user of the design project. Pupils document the progress of the design task using blogging platforms. Pupils then gather 10 or so examples of items similar to the artefact under design for the purposes of benchmarking and evaluating their design against the pre-existing articles.
