Abstract: The kitchen is the centre of domestic life. A well- planned kitchen needs to be functional, efficient and safe for all persons using it, for the enjoyment of family life. The main areas of the study focused on teaching kitchen planning through differentiated learning methods with the aid of Information Computer Technology (I.C.T.). Three interviews were carried out with local furniture makers as to gain better information on the design process. A mini interview via the internet took place with two well known culinary scholars as to gain better knowledge on the local kitchen traditions and set up in the kitchen throughout the twentieth century. A Power Point Presentation programme was produced as to aid differentiated learning in the classroom. In the most recent Home Economics Programme of Study, such a topic may be found under the Choice and Management of Resources. Locally available resources which could be used in the classroom were assessed. A Process Evaluation of the Power Point Presentation took place with three Home Economics teachers.
