infusing critical outcomes
Infusing Critical Outcomes

The Critical Outcomes require learners to be able to:

  • identify and solve problems and make decisions using critical and creative thinking;
  • work effectively with others as members of a team, group, organisation and community;
  • organise and manage themselves and their activities responsibly and effectively;
  • collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information;
  • communicate effectively using visual, symbolic and/or language skills in various modes;
  • use science and technology effectively and critically showing responsibility towards the environment and the health of others; and
  • demonstrate an understanding of the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem solving contexts do not exist in isolation.
infusing developmental outcomes
Infusing Developmental Outcomes

The Developmental Outcomes require learners to be able to:

  • reflect on and explore a variety of strategies to learn more effectively;
  • participate as responsible citizens in the life of local, national and global communities;
  • be culturally and aesthetically sensitive across a range of social contexts;
  • explore education and career opportunities; and
  • develop entrepreneurialopportunities

definition of it
DEFINITION of IT
  • IT focuses on:
    • the solution of problems through
      • logical thinking
      • information management
      • communication
    • development of computer applications
    • awareness of social and economical implications of using computers
what is information technology all about
WHAT IS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ALL ABOUT?

Information Technology will enable learners to understand thegeneral principles of computing and develop structured solutions to problems using appropriateapplication packages, a current programming language, hardware and software and will promote the use of that understanding in their daily lives, in the world of work and in their communities

(IT Subject Statement)

the big picture
THE “BIG PICTURE”
  • Changes in the content – new topics and change in emphasis
  • Programming and application packages
  • Different approach – “integration” rather than “segregation”
  • Changes in methods of assessment
  • Principle: From the known to the unknown, simple to more complex
