Digital Technologies is a dedicated subject area for the in-depth study of computer science and information technologies. It is offered in all year levels for students to improve and specialise their digital skills.

Students studying subjects in the digital technologies will develop knowledge and understanding and practise skills that will apply to future technologies.  They will evaluate its use of and impacts on the world. 

Digital Technologies will help students to:

  • apply systems, design and computational thinking to digital problems in a variety of contexts
  • explore, develop, generate and evaluate digital solutions using current technologies
  • develop specific coding skills used in solving digital problems 

Digital Technologies (7-10) and Digital Solutions (11-12) is the study of data, digital systems, application development, robotics and user experiences in the context of environmental, social, technical and useability constraints. 

In Year 7/8 all students study a semester of Digital Technology. They learn skills in Webpage Development using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. They also learn introductory programming skills using Python.

In Year 9/10 Digital Technologies is an elective. Students further develop Web Development skills, use Lego Mindstorms Robotics and work on Data Management problems. Digital Solutions to problems are explored, developed with prototype applications generated and evaluated.

For further information regarding Digital Technology subjects, please refer to the relevant curriculum handbooks.
