At Holy Family School the Victorian Curriulum Foundation - Year 10 is used to support learning and teaching in Technologies.
In the Victorian Curriculum F–10, the Technologies includes Design and Technology and Digital Technologies. The Technologies provide a framework for students to learn how to use technologies to create innovative solutions that meet current and future needs. Students are encouraged to make decisions about the development and use of technologies, considering the impacts of technological change and how technologies may contribute to a sustainable future. The curriculum provides practical opportunities for students to be users, designers and producers of new technologies.
In Design and Technologies, students use design thinking and technologies to generate and produce designed solutions. In Digital Technologies, students use computational thinking and information systems to analyse, design and develop digital solutions.
The Design and Technologies curriculum is organised by the three related strands;
- Technologies and Society
- Technological Contexts
- Creating Design Solutions
- Digital Systems
- Data and Information
- Creating Digital Solutions
