Welcome to the Technologies Specialist web page. My name is Mrs Jackson and I will be teaching Technologies across the school from year 1 to year 6 Wednesday or Friday.
Technologies provides students with authentic learning challenges that foster curiosity, confidence, persistence, innovation, creativity, respect and cooperation. These attributes are necessary when using and developing solutions to make sense of complex ideas and relationships in all areas of learning. Technologies help students to be regional and global citizens, capable of actively and ethically communicating and collaborating.
In semester 1, the students will study Design Technologies where students use design thinking and technologies to generate and produce solutions for authentic needs and opportunities.
In semester 2, I will be teaching the strand ‘Digital Technologies’ which involves learning about digital systems, different types of data, computational thinking skills and define, design and implement solutions to problems.
I am looking forward to teaching this exciting new learning area with your child this year.
