Digital Technologies will ensure all students benefit from learning about and working with traditional, contemporary and emerging technologies that shape the world we live in.
The curriculum does involve some computer science knowledge and skills and some digital solutions may involve programming and computer science concepts. However, the focus is on the strengthening of computational thinking, logic and problem solving capability to build capacity for the future and applicable to a wide range of situations.
Students will apply computational, design and systems thinking and consider ethical, economic, environmental and social sustainability factors when they design and produce solutions to problems. They will predict outcomes and impacts of technological decisions for current and future generations and consider probable futures.
The Digital Technologies curriculum also focuses on project management. Students are explicitly taught how to manage projects and apply this knowledge in their projects.
Australia needs enterprising individuals who can make discerning decisions about the development and use of technologies. It needs people who can independently and collaboratively develop innovative solutions to complex problems in a knowledge economy and contribute to sustainable patterns of living.
A comprehensive education in Technologies provides opportunities for students to progress from creative and directed play through to the consolidation of Technologies knowledge, understanding and skills that can be applied to create innovative solutions. In creating solutions, as well as learning about technologies, they will contribute to sustainable futures for themselves and others.
