Design and Technology

​Technologies enrich and impact on the lives of people and societies globally. Australia needs enterprising individuals who can make discerning decisions about the development and use of technologies, and who can independently and collaboratively develop solutions to complex challenges and contribute to sustainable patterns of living. 

Technologies can play an important role in transforming, restoring and sustaining societies and natural, managed and constructed environments. 

Students create designed solutions for one or more of the technologies contexts based on a critical evaluation of needs or opportunities.  They establish detailed criteria for success, including sustainability considerations, and use these to evaluate their ideas and designed solutions and processes.  They create and connect design ideas and processes of increasing complexity and justify decisions.  Students communicate and document projects.  They independently and collaboratively apply sequenced production and management plans when producing designed solutions, making adjustments to plans when necessary.  They select and use appropriate technologies skilfully and safely to product high-quality designed solutions suitable for the intended purpose. 

The practical nature of the Technologies learning area engages students in critical and creative thinking, including understanding interrelationships in systems when solving complex problems.
