The Digital Technologies course provides students with an opportunity to develop and extend their skills in designing and programming digital solutions to problems. Students work individually and collaboratively to explore how to use digital technologies to solve problems across a range of disciplines, working through a process of designing, coding, validating, and evaluating potential solutions. Students will develop skills in algorithmic thinking, programming, data analysis, managing design processes and will also consider ethical and social issues relating to digital solutions.
Links with other subjects: This course links to Stage 2 Mathematics through the analysis of big data, and has opportunities to link to any Stage 2 course through the choice of problems to solve. This course aligns with student learning in the Certificate III in Information Technology.
