Information and Software Technology
People will require highly developed levels of computing and technology literacy for their future lives. Students therefore need to be aware of the scope, limitations and implications of information and software technologies.
Information and Software Technology offers individual and group tasks, performed over a range of projects, and will enable this practical-based course to deliver the relevant knowledge and skills needed by students. Development of technology skills and information about career opportunities within this area are important aspects of the course.
Information and Software Technology is an elective course that may be studied for 100 or 200 hours in Stage 5. It builds on the knowledge, skills and experiences developed in the Technology (Mandatory) Years 7–8 Syllabus and will be recorded, with a grade, on the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).
