Abstract: 
Design & Technology anchors on design actions, which can be too complex for pupils. Pupils find difficulty to readily apply related design knowledge and skills learnt. As such, pupils may be 'handicapped' and may not be able to design and create unique products. 'Design process pedagogies' serve as a guide for pupils on the sequence of design actions. Pupils were required to consider design issues related to user needs and form & function through carefully planned activities. There were ample opportunities for pupils to interact and be immersed in the design process with teachers acting as facilitators. As such, the process is flexible enough to suit the pupils' abilities and interests in creating products uniquely their own.
