Studying Technology includes the use of a broad range of knowledge, skills, and understanding, and prompts engagement in a wide variety of activities.
Technology subjects are seen as a dynamic, ongoing process involving students. Students design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts and mediums. Students need to acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as Mathematics, Science, Engineering and Art. Students learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens of the community.
Through evaluation of past and present Technology subjects, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. Here at Stockland Green school we use a wide range of media to allow students to fulfil the curriculum in their own creative journey.
