Digital Technologies 1 & 2
Programming knowledge advantageous.
Level 4 in 10 Mathematics OR 10 Programming for Real Life OR 10 DigiTech Girls.
Learning, Communication, Citizenship, Work.
In Digital Technologies 1 and 2 students create practical, innovative solutions to problems of interest. Students develop and apply their skills in computational thinking and in program design. They are encouraged to take ownership of problems and design, code, validate and evaluate their solutions. In doing so, they develop and extend their understanding of designing and programming, including basic constructs involved in coding, array processing, and modularisation.
It is organised into the following four Focus Areas: Programming, Exploring Innovations, Advanced Programming and Data Analytics.
In Programming, students identify and deconstruct a problem, and develop and use code to design and test possible solutions.
In Exploring Innovations, students apply their creativity and critical thinking skills to explore developments in digital innovations, develop ideas, and create digital solutions.
In Advanced Programming, students extend their programming and problem solving skills
In Data Analytics students apply their computational thinking skills to analyse relationships in data sets, scope problems, and create solutions.
