SACE Stage 1

10 or 20 credits

Students explore the application of digital technologies and apply their creativity and critical thinking skills to the development of ideas and digital solutions to problems. They learn to develop applications, use innovative technologies and collect and analyse data from a range of sources.

Students are encouraged to take ownership of problems and design, code, validate and evaluate their solutions. In doing so, they develop and extend their understanding of programming. Students work individually and collaboratively in this course.
