Content

In a world where technology is encompassing every part of our lives, the skill of thinking critically and solving problems can fall to the way side. Technology helps us to achieve a lot of things much more easily, which is great, but we need to control and shape it to fit our needs. If you do not exercise these skills, they will become fatigued and disappear but we need them to be paramount if we are to thrive in this technological world and design the next big thing. To be successful technologists, we need to be able to develop knowledge and confidence to think critically in order to analyse requirements of technological projects and synergise this with problem solving abilities to creatively respond to design challenges in order to get the best outcomes. The knowledge, understanding and skills you learn in this unit will aid in your ability to critically analyse information and design technologies with algorithms that will play a key role in enriching and transforming our society.
