TECHNOLOGY

Head of Faculty: MR N BOOTH

Technology is intervention by design: the use of practical and intellectual resources to develop products and systems (technological outcomes) that expand human possibilities by addressing needs and realising opportunities.

Adaptation and innovation are the heart of the technological practice. Quality outcomes result from thinking and practices that are informed, critical and creative. Technology makes enterprising use of its own particular knowledge and skills, together with those of other disciplines. Graphics and other forms of visual representation offer important exploration for communication.

Year 9 Foundation Technology (one semester)

All Year 9 students will take a semester of technological studies where they will be given opportunities to explore and address a variety of issues. This will allow each student to develop their technological capability and prepare them for the more specialised courses offered at Year 10.

Course cost: $30 per student – this covers the costs of the various materials used to complete each of the projects undertaken. From this each student should be able to bring home the items which they have designed and made.

Year 10 Extension and Specialised Courses (one or two semesters)

Each semester presents an opportunity to follow a specialised course of study in a technology specialism. Students who choose a two semester course will have an opportunity to use each semester to study one of the five subjects offered. The subjects offered will be product design technology (working with wood and metal), electronics technology (using electronics and constructing circuits), textiles technology (designing and making fashion related items), food technology (using food with a focus on nutrition), graphics (using basic design skills) and computing (programming and web development). Each of these courses is designed to extend the students’ technological competence and confidence and provide a useful foundation for the level 1 courses.

Course Costs:
Product Design Technology: $30 – this will cover the materials costs of most of the projects undertaken as a part of the course. We have added a Ukulele project that requires extra specialist components and students choosing to complete this project will be expected to purchase a special components pack.

Food Technology: $40 – fees are structured on an average per head for the food students use in food classes.

Graphics: $15 – for model making materials, specialist colouring and drawing supplies

Textiles Technology: $30 – students will be supplied with the fabrics and resources, e.g. buttons, hooks, elastic etc. needed for mock-up/practice garments. Students will purchase their own resources for projects that they will take home at the end of the semester.

Electronics Technology: $25 – this will cover the materials and component costs of most of the projects undertaken as a part of the course.

Senior Courses

Courses with a more achievement standard focus are designed for students wanting to go on to university, i.e. product design technology, fashion design technology, graphics, computing, robotics and information technology.

Courses with a more unit standard focus are designed for students who wish to pursue a trade or apprenticeship, however the credits can be used to meet university requirements, i.e. food and nutritional studies, hospitality, engineering, automotive engineering, automotive body repair, building technology, computer aided and technical drawing, beginners computing and information technology and computer studies.

BEYOND SECONDARY SCHOOL
