In Junior secondary students learn computing skills through our 1:1 laptop program as part of their subject learning areas.
Information technology refers to the creation, manipulation, storage, retrieval and communication of information and to the range of technological devices and systems used to perform these functions.
Information Processing and Technology (IPT) is an OP course of study that provides students with knowledge, skills, processes and understanding of information technology. It emphasises problem identification and solution rather than the use of applications and is an intellectual discipline that involves a study of information and intelligent systems, software and system engineering, human-computer interactions and the social and ethical issues associated with the use of information technology.
Students might also choose to study a Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology. This is a vocational education and training (VET) subject designed to allow students to develop information and communication technologies (ICT) knowledge and skills and to gain Information Technology (IT) qualifications.
Students may also choose a Certificate III in Media. This is also a VET subject designed to give students knowledge and skills in digital media.
