Technologies Curriculum by Mind Map: Technologies Curriculum

1. Aims

1.1. To develop the knowledge, understandings and skills to ensure that students:

1.1.1. Investigate, design, plan, manage, create and evaluate solutions

1.1.2. Are creative, innovative and enterprising when using all technologies, and understand how they have developed over time

1.1.3. Make informed and ethical decisions about technologies in the economy, environment and society in regards to a sustainable future

1.1.4. Engage confidently and responsibly with appropriate technologies such as materials, data, systems, components, tools and equipment when designing and creating solutions

1.1.5. Critique, analyse and evaluate problems, needs or opportunities to identify and create solutions

1.1.6. Produce designed solutions suitable for a range of Technologies contexts by selecting and manipulating a range of materials, systems, components, tools and equipment creatively, competently and safely

1.1.7. Understand the roles and responsibilities of people in design and technologies occupations and how they contribute to society

1.1.8. Use computational thinking and the key concepts of abstraction; data collection, representation and interpretation; specification, algorithms and implementation to create digital solutions

1.1.9. Confidently use digital systems to efficiently and effectively transform data into information and to creatively communicate ideas in a range of settings

1.1.10. Apply systems thinking to monitor, analyse, predict and shape the interactions within and between information systems and understand the impact of these systems on individuals, societies, economies and environments
