Information Technology Systems (Year 11 and 12)

Course overview

Information Technology Systems (ITS) is a practical discipline which prepares students to respond to emerging technologies and information technology (IT) trends. Students develop the knowledge of, and skills in, the systems supporting IT. Systems range from those supporting the development of information, such as documents or websites, to those supporting technology, such as computers or networks.

Information Technology Systems prepares students to cope with, and harness to their advantage, the changes and significant opportunities associated with IT. This subject may lead to employment in such areas as IT support, graphic and multimedia manipulation, or tertiary study in the fields of multimedia design, games design, website design and animation.

Information communication and technology (Year 10)

Course overview

Modern technological societies are characterised by the rapid expansion of knowledge and the ease of access to, and exchange of, information in a digital format. Active and informed participation in this world requires citizens to be adaptable and self-directed users of information and communication technology. They need to work analytically and creatively, behave ethically, be socially responsible and work collaboratively.

In the study of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), students develop and demonstrate the knowledge, practices and dispositions necessary to operate effectively in information-rich environments. They understand the transformation of data to information, of information to knowledge, as well as the interdependence of human and technological agencies that lead to these transformations.
