The Design and Technologies curriculum is organised by the three related strands of Technologies and Society, Technological Contexts, and Creating Design Solutions.
In Design and Technologies, students are actively engaged in the processes of creating designed solutions for personal, domestic and global settings for a sustainable future. For younger children, this usually involves personal and family settings, where there is an immediate, direct and tangible outcome and where playfulness and practical exploration are a focus.
Digital Technologies comprises of three related strands: Digital Systems, Data and Information, and Creating Digital Solutions. In Digital Technologies, students are actively engaged in the processes of analysing problems and opportunities, designing, developing and evaluating digital solutions, and creating and sharing information that meets a range of current and future needs. Students learn to safely and ethically exploit the capacity of information systems to create digital solutions. These solutions and information are created through the application of computational, design and systems thinking, and technical skills.
