Year 9 Digital Technologies
Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Fraser
Students choosing digital technologies pathways will develop the more specialised skills that industry partners say are in high demand. The new content covers two key areas, computational thinking and designing and developing digital outcomes.
Computational thinking is about understanding the computer science principles that underlie all digital technologies, and learning how to develop instructions, such as programming, to control these technologies.
Designing and developing digital outcomes is about understanding that digital systems and applications are created for humans by humans, and developing knowledge and skills in using different digital technologies to create digital content across a range of digital media.
