Level 2 Digital Technology
Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Dewhurst
Students first develop a complex website designed to support the learning of English as a second language which is intended for ex-refugees. The website has to contain original media and satisfy a range of heuristic functions explored the previous year.
This is to be started by exploring and analysing how information is managed and shared securely within Garin college. This requires a practical understanding of how information is managed. The main project is directed at the issues faced by the refugees that learn at Victory School. Students develop a brief which outlines their plan for a multimedia educational website which supports literacy and a relevant aspect of life in New Zealand. The website requires original multimedia content created by the student. The project involves visits to the Victory Community School to confirm the issue and test the websites with the refugees.
All strands of this course will be continued the following year.
