DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAMMING 11F - Full Year

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms T. Winter

Digital Technologies Programming (DTP) is the study of the computational concepts and technical understandings that underpin the creation of a digital outcome.  This course focuses on the interaction between humans and computers. Students will learn the programming and user interface development skills through the creation of their own programming outcome. 

This course will develop:

  • skills in designing and developing a digital outcome 
  • specific programming skills - computational thinking  
  • evaluating understanding of HCI (Human Computer Interaction) 
  • knowledge and understanding of algorithms
  • knowledge of databases or a computer system 

Career Outlook:
CAD Draftsperson, Computer Systems Engineer, Database Development & Administration, Design/Product Development Engineer, Electronics Engineer/Technician, Food Technologist, Game Developer, Geospatial (GIS) Analyst, Graphic Designer, ICT Multimedia Designer Developers, IT Support Professional, Product Evaluator, Robotics or Automation Engineer, Software Developer/Engineer, Software Tester, Telecommunications/Network Engineer, UX/UI Designers, Web Developer. 


Recommended Prior Learning

A creative and inquisitive mind, problem solving skills and self management competencies. It would be of benefit if a Year 10CCT course of learning with Digital Technologies has been undertaken however an express interest in computers and programming in general will be helpful.
