In Digital Technologies students are provided with practical opportunities to use design thinking and to be innovative developers of digital solutions and knowledge. Digital Technologies is a subject that has a specific curriculum and includes the practical application of the ICT general capability.
We believe that effective use of digital technologies increases academic engagement as well as equipping students with a variety of necessary 21st century skills we call The Four Cs (collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication). These skills are core competencies for future citizens.
Coding across the curriculum at Applecross Primary is designed to support the introduction of computer coding throughout the school. Importantly, this approach develops algorithmic thinking in Technologies and other key learning areas – including Mathematics and Science.
