8. Achievement Standard

8.1. Design and Technologies

8.1.1. By the end of Stage A, students react to significant designed solutions that meet their needs.With guidance, students experience designed solutions in at least one technologies context. They begin to communicate their needs and indicate a choice or preference through accept and reject actions. Students react to the use of tools and equipment and experience the sequenced steps involved in producing a designed solution.

8.2. Digital Technologies

8.2.1. By the end of Stage A, students recognise common digital systems that are used to meet specific everyday purposes. Students react to different types of data and how digital systems can be used to represent data as images. Students recognise that routine tasks involve completing a set of steps.
