1. Aims and Objectives

1.1. Students are to become aware of how technology has changed over time. They are to use critical and creative thinking when deciding the 'what, how and when' of technology usage and its impact on a sustainable future. They can identify problems and use digital technologies to create solutions, then evaluate and discuss their findings.

2. Rationale

2.1. Students will think critically and make informed decisions about technology and its uses. All students will be able to apply knowledge, skills and processes when using technology.

3. Key Ideas

3.1. Overarching Ideas: Creating Preferred Futures

3.1.1. Creating preferred futures, recognise benefits, impacts and consequences of technology, now and in the future.

3.2. Thinking in Technologies

3.2.1. Project Management Plan, organise and complete activities.

3.2.2. Systems Thinking Generating ideas and finding solutions. Recognising the connectedness of the world around us.

3.2.3. Design Thinking Using strategies to understand design needs, finding and evaluating creative solutions to problems.

3.2.4. Computational Thinking Finding solutions to problems that can be solved using digital technologies.

4. General capabilities

4.1. Literacy

4.1.1. Use language to communicate and learn.

4.2. Numeracy

4.2.1. Interpret and use mathematical knowledge in real life situations.

4.3. ICT

4.3.1. Understand how to use digital technologies to solve problems and evaluate data.

4.4. Critical and Creative Thinking

4.4.1. Generate, clarify and evaluate data to solve problems.

4.5. Personal and Social Capabilities
