Technology is the intervention by design: the use of practical and intellectual resources to develop products and systems (technological outcomes) that expand human possibilities by addressing needs and realising opportunities.
Adaptation and innovation are the heart of the technological practice. Quality outcomes result from thinking and practices that are informed, critical and creative. Technology makes enterprising use of its own particular knowledge and skills, together with those of other disciplines. Graphics and other forms of visual representation offer important exploration for communication.
Each semester presents an opportunity to follow a specialised course of study in a technology specialism. The subjects offered will be product design technology (working with wood and metal), textiles technology (designing and making fashion related items), food technology (using food with a focus on nutrition), and computing (programming and web development). Each of these courses is designed to extend the students’ technological competence and confidence and provide a useful foundation for the level 1-3 courses.
