Our computer studies curriculum, prepare students to be in the position of using creativity and computational skills, to solve real world problems. For instance, in solving a simple problem, you could go through manipulations of several variable definitions, functions, changing codes, analysing issues from unsuccessful attempts before you get a right execution. These processes develop your tolerance, and creativity skills. It also makes your logical and thought pattern clearer, and that is why our curriculum equip students with the necessary and appropriate knowledge and skills for the next level of their lives.
Problem solving is a daily activity, be it personal issues or at the workplace. We develop students analytical and computational thinking, for them to be imaginative to explore their environment. The world as a global village, keeps becoming smaller and smaller each day, due to technological innovations, so developing resilience in students in these and future trends, means building independent thinkers for future. Using computational methods in solving problems requires critical skills such as breaking down task into its essential steps, collaboration, and writing commands in any high-level language such as Python, C++, Java and many more.
Year 7 and 8
The curriculum is aimed at developing students’ creativity and computational thinking skills, which would make them capable of surviving in the present technological innovations and then changing their world.
Our curriculum has been designed to ensure learners develop the basic concept of information communication technology skills, such as how to log onto the school system; using technology responsibly, safely, and respectfully; using applications such as Teams, emails, OneDrive, PowerPoint, Word, and Spreadsheet. Learners also explore the basic understanding of computer system, hardware, software, and how computers work; computational skills; one graphical programming language such as Scratch; and two text-based programming languages, Small Basics and Python. learners are able to design, build, and evaluate project that solve real-world problems. The intent of this k curriculum, allows learners to explore, discover and present information independently.
Level 2 and 3 Qualifications
Our curriculum is built on the strong foundation provided to students in Years 7 and 8. The curriculum is a recurring one, which gives opportunity for consolidation of knowledge, ensuring all learners’ interest and needs are accommodated. Our rich curriculum gives learners the opportunity to develop capability and competence in problem-solving, communication, critical thinking, programming techniques, and ethical legal and environmental issues in order to solve real world problems.
