Learning in Digital Technologies focuses on developing understanding and skills in computational thinking such as identifying similarities in different problems and describing smaller components of complex systems. It also focuses on the sustainability of information systems for current and future uses.
One of the major learning goals in Digital Technologies is the ability for students to learn how to code. Computer coding is the use of computer programming languages to give computers and machines a set of instructions on what actions to perform. It's how humans communicate with machines. It's what allows us to create computer software like programs, operating systems, and mobile apps.
At St. Augustine's we have iPads that are used in the junior classrooms (F – 2) for learning and development. The Senior school students (3 – 6) have one to one Chromebooks that are utilised in all learning areas.
Students also complete Cyber Safety lessons to ensure the understanding of the implications of using the iPads and computers.
