Coding (Digital Technologies)

SACE Credits: 20

Teacher: Claire Kellaway

In this subject you will be collaborating to create practical innovative solutions to solving real world problems through designing, coding, validating, and evaluating these solutions. You will be involved in a project design where you will design and test a product or prototype and possibly implement it. The course covers four focus areas of computational thinking, design and programming, data analytics and project development which are all interconnected.

 

There is no exam in this subject. The final assessment is an individual project solution which is externally examined.
