We all need to be proficient and confident when using a computer and software in order to fully participate in a rapidly changing world.

As the expected level of skill has increased in ICT, the focus of study has changed from a skills-based subject to one that requires understanding and application.

We have embraced this change by adopting a more flexible approach to allow students to make informed decisions and to personalise their learning. Students have opportunities to:

  • Use ICT to create solutions and solve real world problems.
  • Study and use new technology and technological systems in school, at home and in a global society.
  • Develop an understanding of how computers work, programming languages and games design.
  • Demonstrate creativity and use their own initiative to inspire others.
