Digital Technologies

Click the headings below to reveal information.

Year 9 Digital Technologies focuses on further developing understanding and skills in computational thinking such as precisely and accurately describing problems and seeking various approaches to problem solving.

Students have opportunities to analyse problems and design, implement and evaluate a range of solutions. Students will use graphical manipulation (Photoshop), build a Web site and create an online publication. Students will consider the human interaction with robotic systems by learning to code using programming principles.

Students 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.

When creating solutions individually, collaboratively and interactively for sharing in online environments, students respect the ownership of information. By successfully completing this course, students will have a stronger understanding of digital technologies at both a practical and ethical level.

This course has helped me improve my computer skills. It is very hands-on and is a lot of fun while being challenging at the same time. I have learnt very helpful and practical skills that are transferable to other areas in life.
