Design and Technologies
Children are living in an ever-changing technological world. As part of the Design and Technologies curriculum, your child will be asked to think like a designer in order to investigate and generate solutions to design problems. Children will need to think critically and creatively in order to research and analyse different design concepts and respond to design challenges.
Children will develop solutions to design problems and then create, test, evaluate and modify their designs. Children will work collaboratively with others in order to share their design ideas and critique the design ideas of others.
The Design and Technologies program will be integrated with other learning areas and will require children to use their literacy skills, as well as their understandings of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
At Our Lady of Hope, digital technologies are used to enrich, enhance and extend all curriculum areas and we are committed to providing up-to-date technology. Our students have access to current technology and software programs, which enable them to access information and communicate ideas and designs in alternative ways. Digital technology is integrated into every subject area and children learn to use and create with digital technology. As part of the Digital Technologies program, your child will learn how to use digital systems effectively and efficiently in order to present data and communicate with others.
