Technologies provides students with practical opportunities to use design
thinking and to be innovative developers of digital solutions and knowledge.
The subject helps students to become innovative creators of digital solutions,
effective users of digital systems and critical consumers of information
conveyed by digital systems.
In the first unit, through
rigorous design processes, students use a general-purpose programming language
or environment to develop a home entertainment solution within a game development environment.
In the second unit students develop an understanding of computer programming as a collection of smaller programmed units. They use hardware systems to solve problems of increasing complexity, progressively controlling more and more aspects of their built environment.
