  • Resource Overview

    An engaging online research task for students to investigate multicultural influences on contemporary Australian diets.

    Students are to research the multicultural influences on contemporary Australian diets and present their findings in an informative and visually appealing way. Students have opportunities for autonomous learning throughout this task.

    This research task was developed for students to investigate and present information in a creative and innovative way.

    This task can be completed online and will require students to conduct their own research. Students are also given the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences with multicultural cuisine and answer a range of questions once they have completed their PowerPoint presentations.

    This resource includes a 9-minute instructional video that steps the students through the successful completion of the task.

    We have provided a student sample that can be used as an example of how students can present their findings. Students do not have to follow the sample format, it is only to be used as a guide for inspiration.

    Pack includes:

    • 2-page student instruction sheet
      • Student reflection questions
      • Student self-evaluation
    • Student sample PowerPoint
    • 9-minute video with narrated instructions – great for online learning

     

     

  • Curriculum

    • Australian
    • Design and Technologies > Year 7, Year 8 > Design and Technologies Knowledge and Understanding

      ACTDEK033
      Analyse how characteristics and properties of food determine preparation techniques and presentation when designing solutions for healthy eating

      Elaboration
      • analysing food preparation techniques used in different cultures including those from the Asia region and the impact of these on nutrient retention, aesthetics, taste and palatability, for example stir-frying
      • examining the relationship between food preparation techniques and the impact on nutrient value, for example steaming vegetables
      • explaining how food preparation techniques impact on the sensory properties (flavour, appearance, texture, aroma) of food, for example the browning of cut fruit, the absorption of water when cooking rice
      • investigating how a recipe can be modified to enhance health benefits, and justifying decisions, for example by replacing full cream milk with skim milk
      • planning and making quality, safe and nutritious food items, using a range of food preparation tools, equipment and techniques


      Design and Technologies > Year 7, Year 8 > Design and Technologies Processes and Production Skills

      ACTDEP036
      Generate, develop, test and communicate design ideas, plans and processes for various audiences using appropriate technical terms and technologies including graphical representation techniques

      Elaboration
      • considering which ideas to further explore and investigating the benefits and drawbacks of ideas, for example using digital polling to capture the views of different groups in the community
      • developing models, prototypes or samples using a range of materials, tools and equipment to test the functionality of ideas
      • documenting and communicating the generation and development of design ideas for an intended audience, for example developing a digital portfolio with images and text which clearly communicates each step of a design process
      • identifying factors that may hinder or enhance project development, for example intercultural understanding
      • producing annotated concept sketches and drawings, using: technical terms, scale, symbols, pictorial and aerial views to draw environments; production drawings, orthogonal drawings; patterns and templates to explain design ideas
      • using a variety of critical and creative thinking strategies such as brainstorming, sketching, 3-D modelling and experimenting to generate innovative design ideas


      Design and Technologies > Year 9, Year 10 > Design and Technologies Processes and Production Skills

      ACTDEP049
      Develop, modify and communicate design ideas by applying design thinking, creativity, innovation and enterprise skills of increasing sophistication

      Elaboration
      • communicating using appropriate technical terms and recording the generation and development of design ideas for an intended audience including justification of decisions, for example developing a digital portfolio with images and text which clearly communicates each step of a design process
      • considering competing variables that may hinder or enhance project development, for example weight, strength and price; laws; social protocols and community consultation processes
      • producing drawings, models and prototypes to explore design ideas, for example using technical drawing techniques, digital imaging programs, 3D printers or augmented reality modelling software; producing multiple prototypes that show an understanding of key aesthetic considerations in competing designs
      • re-imagining designs to feature emerging technologies
      • undertaking functional, structural and aesthetic analyses of benefits and constraints of design ideas, for example to different communities and environments including those from the countries of Asia
      • using techniques including combining and modifying ideas and exploring functionality to generate solution concepts

    › collects, evaluates and applies information from a variety of sources FT5-8
    › communicates ideas and information using a range of media and appropriate terminology FT5-9
    › examines the relationship between food, technology and society FT5-12

    · investigate multicultural influences on contemporary Australian diets, for example:
    – effects of immigration on lifestyle and food habits
    – types of foods and flavourings
    – preparation techniques and cooking methods, e.g. steaming, stir-frying, smoking

    It was a beauty - placed the cards around the classroom and did a little activity with the information which lead into an assessment task
