The Design Museum Collection for iPad is a collection of 59 featured objects from London’s Design Museum. The collection includes items that changed the way we work, items that changed the way entire categories of products are designed, and some items that are notable just for being different. As you browse through the collection you can read about the items, watch videos about them, and listen to museum curators talk about what makes the items notable.
The Design Museum Collection for iPad is a free app. To use this app in your classroom have your students browse through the items in a category then suggest other items that they think deserve recognition for their significant design features. Or ask your students to pick a favorite item from a category and design improvements to it.
