Level 2 Digital Technologies

12DIG
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Gray

Digital Technologies covers a wide range of study, from programing and computer science to digital media. In this course, students will develop an understanding of the nature of technology looking at design and function of the gaming mouse. Students are then able to choose which area they want to work in, programming or digital media. Students do not undertake all the standards listed, digital media students will work  design, construct and project management. Programmers will work on programing and project management. As students are able to develop their own individual projects they will need to be able to self manage, meeting deadlines and breaking down the project into smaller more manageable parts.
