Hi, I have just been given the contexts for my gcse Design and Technology Non-examined assessment and I plan to create pages of initial ideas. The only trouble is I'm in this massive creative rut and am struggling to get going as I feel incredibly uninspired by the contexts. Sadly, I have to create initial ideas for all 3 contexts so I'm feeling a bit drained. It would be so incredibly helpful if you could think of any ideas, they don't have to be made with any specific materials and don't have to be developed as thats my job! Thank you so much if you do provide me with any ideas.

1. Smarter living Being well-organised in today’s busy world is important. Explore the

2. Physical recreation Recreational activities such as cycling, running, aerobics and team
sports are becoming increasingly popular with people of all ages.
Explore the role design can play in enhancing the experiences for
people who participate in these kinds of activities.

Hey :hello: its always best if the idea comes from you as you will be much more invested into it if/when you have to make the product for real in the classroom and carry the project for months
What i would suggest is for each context (1,2 and 3) write the context in the middle e.g people feeling lonely and try to come up with the problems about why people feel lonely e.g elderly people not getting out as much and then below each problem try to come up with potential products to try to solve the problem
