Click the headings below to reveal information.

Year 10 Digital Technologies focuses on further developing understanding and skills in computational thinking, such as precisely and accurately describing problems; and the use of various approaches to solutions.

Students will engage in animation design. Students will visualise data using spreadsheets. Students will explore data collection methods via database design and use structured data to analyse, visualise, model and evaluate digital technologies.

Students consider the impact of technology on current social issues. They consider the privacy and security implications of how data are used and controlled, and suggest how policies and practices can be improved to ensure the sustainability and safety of information systems.

Students have opportunities to create solutions individually, collaboratively and interactively for sharing in online environments.

Committed students will find the course both interesting and rewarding as they acquire and apply a range of knowledge and skills to create information solutions that inform, persuade, educate or entertain. It will also provide a good foundation for the ATAR Applied Information Technology course offered in Years 11 and 12.

The frequency of this subject is TWO periods per week.

The course allowed me to challenge my understanding of hardware and software. It also allowed me to express my creativity through engaging activities and projects. Everything I had learnt in the course was valuable and transferable to other Learning Areas.
