DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAMMING 11F - Full Year

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs T. Winter

Digital Technologies Programming (DTP) is the study of the computational concepts and technical understandings that underpin the creation of a digital outcome.  A focus on this course will be on the interaction between humans and computers with particular emphasis on the user's experience of online quiz interfaces. Students will learn the programming and user interface development skills through the creation of their own programming outcome. This course leads on to DTP21F.

This course will develop:

  • skills in designing and developing a digital outcome 
  • specific programming skills 
  • computational thinking 
  • evaluating understanding of HCI (Human Computer Interaction) 
  • knowledge and understanding of algorithms
  • knowledge of databases or a computer system 

Career Outlook:
CAD Draftsperson, Computer Systems Engineer, Database Development & Administration, Design/Product Development Engineer, Electronics Engineer/Technician, Food Technologist, Game Developer, Geospatial (GIS) Analyst, Graphic Designer, ICT Multimedia Designer Developers, IT Support Professional, Product Evaluator, Robotics or Automation Engineer, Software Developer/Engineer, Software Tester, Telecommunications/Network Engineer, UX/UI Designers, Web Developer. This can lead to employment in companies such as Kathmandu, Spark, Orion Health, Tait Communications, CerebralFix, Vodafone, Fonterra, SLI Systems.


Pathway

Recommended Prior Learning

A creative and inquisitive mind, problem solving skills and self management competencies. It would be ideal to have completed a Year 10 course of learning with Digital Technologies, however if an express interest in computers and programming in general will be helpful.
