Overview

Digital Technologies enables students to become creative developers of digital solutions so they can take an active role in meeting current and future needs.

For more details about courses and subjects, please refer to the latest Course Guides.

Key Study Areas

Students at Year 9 students can choose from two (2) Digital Technologies electives: Computing – An Introduction to Programming, and Computing – Web Authoring.

Areas of study include:

  • Designing software programs
  • Computer science
  • Developing and editing software programs using drag and drop
  • Web authoring
  • Website design
  • Acquiring and manipulating data
  • Creating graphics for the web.

Assessment Items include:

  • Digital portfolio of program designs and constructions
  • Folio of website design and development tasks.

Year 10 students can chose from the following electives:

  • Programming for the Web
  • Programming

Areas of study include:

  • Designing and creating interactive solutions for sharing ideas and information online
  • Creating solutions that demonstrate a clear sense of purpose and respect for the audience
  • Investigating the role of hardware and software in a networked system.
  • Designing the user experience of a solution
  • Design algorithms using flow charts and pseudocode
  • Developing modular programs.

Assessment items include:

  • Digital portfolio of site designs and constructions
  • Collaborative investigation and programming task.

Both electives provide a future pathway towards Unit 1 & 2 Computing.

In Year 11, students have the option to study Unit 1 & 2 Applied Computing. Students focus on how data can be used within software tools such as databases and spreadsheets to create data visualisations, and use programming languages to develop working software solutions, developing innovative solutions to needs or opportunities that they have identified, and propose strategies for reducing security risks to data and information in a networked environment.

Areas of study include:

  • Data analytics
  • Data visualisations
  • Designing software solutions
  • Innovative solutions
  • Network security
  • Programming
  • project management.

Assessment items include:

  • Data visualisation
  • Folio of working software programs
  • Innovative solution
  • Network security recommendation.
  • Project plan

Both electives provide a future pathway towards Unit 3 & 4 Applied Computing studies.

In Year 12, students can choose from the following subjects:

  • Data Analytics Unit 3 & 4
  • Software Development Unit 3 & 4

In Data Analytics students students identify and extract data through the use of software tools such as database, spreadsheet and data visualisation software to create data visualisations or infographics among other areas.

In Systems Development students develop working software modules using a programming language, focus on how the information needs of individuals and organisations are met through the creation of software solutions. They consider the risks to software and data during the software development process, as well as throughout the use of the software solution by an organisation.
