13 DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Paterson
Students will have the choice of three broad pathways in the Level 3 digital technology course: Web development, Design, and “Hacking”.
The program is open entry but will build on the skills developed in Level 2 towards more advanced projects for those who have completed the Level 2 course.
All three pathways will involve designing and developing a digital outcome of some sort. Mobile phone apps, Minecraft worlds, Websites, Videos and Digital Music are a few examples of possible projects.
There will be opportunities for students to work together and collaborate on projects if this is what they choose to do.
The skills and knowledge acquired in this course will serve as a solid grounding tertiary study in Computer Science and / or for a future involving digital technology beyond school.
Internal Assessment 16 credits. External Assessment 3 credits.
