Digital Technologies – Year 11, 11DT

This course is organised into two projects – web development and programming. In the web development module you will learn about what makes a successful website and then design and create a website using HTML and CSS, integrating modern web design principles and images edited or created in Adobe Photoshop. The development of your site will be managed using an agile methodology. You will then learn the foundations of programming with Python – an extremely relevant skill in the digital world we live in.

Assessment: A mixture of internal and external assessment will be offered in this course

Pre-requisites: Nil
