Students use ICT to investigate , analyse information, evaluate design ideas, communicate and collaborate online.

8.4. Critical and creative thinking

8.4.1. Students develop capability in critical and creative thinking as they imagine, generate, develop and critically evaluate ideas. They develop reasoning and the capacity for abstraction through challenging problems that do not have straightforward solutions. Students analyse problems, refine concepts and reflect on the decision-making process by engaging in systems, design and computational thinking ( School Curriculm and Standard Athoruity, 2017)

8.5. Personal and social capability

8.5.1. Students develop personal and social capability as they engage in project management and development in a collaborative workspace. They direct their own learning, plan and carry out investigations, and become independent learners who can apply design thinking, technologies understanding and skills when making decisions. The Technologies learning area enhances students' personal and social capability by developing their social awareness.
