Digital Technology



Digital Technology 

The Digital Technologies curriculum at OLHC enables students to become confident and creative developers of digital solutions through the application of information systems and specific ways of thinking about problem solving.

Students acquire a deep knowledge and understanding of digital systems, data and information and the processes associated with creating digital solutions so they can take up an active role in meeting current and future needs.

The Digital Technologies program is based upon the Victorian Curriculum and aims to ensure that students can:

● Design, create, manage and evaluate sustainable and innovative digital solutions to meet and redefine current and future needs
● Use computational thinking and the key concepts of abstraction; data collection, representation and interpretation; specification, algorithms and development to create digital solutions
● Apply systems thinking to monitor, analyse, predict and shape the interactions within and between information systems and the impact of these systems on individuals, societies, economies and environments
● Confidently use digital systems to efficiently and effectively automate the transformation of data into information and to creatively communicate ideas in a range of settings
● Apply protocols and legal practices that support safe, ethical and respectful communications and collaboration with known and unknown audiences.
