Digital Technologies comprises two related strands:

Digital Technologies knowledge and understanding - the information system components of data, and digital systems (hardware, software and networks). Students build their knowledge around digital systems, including the components of digital systems: hardware, software and networks and their use. Data knowledge is built, including the representation of data and how it is structured symbolically.

Digital Technologies processes and production skills - using digital systems to create ideas and information, and to define, design and implement digital solutions, and evaluate these solutions and existing information systems against specified criteria.

Digital Technologies more specifically aims to develop the knowledge, understainding and skills to ensure that, individually and colaboratively, students:

  • design, create, manage and evaluate sustainable and innovative digital solutions to meet and redefine current and future needs
  • use computational thinking and the key concepts of abstraction; data collection, representation and interpretation; specification, algorithms and implementation to create digital solutions
  • confidently use digital systems to efficiently and effectively automate the transformation of data into information and to creatively communicate ideas in a range of settings
  • apply protocols and legal practices that support safe, ethical and respectful communications and collaboration with known and unknown audiences
  • apply systems thinking to monitor, analyse, predict and shape the interactions within and between information systems and the impact of these systems on individuals, societies, economies and environments.
