It is recommended that students have completed at least 2 Technology teaching (subject) area units prior to enrolling in this unit.

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

demonstrate a sound understanding of the role, rationale and content of the Technologies curriculum including opportunities to support literacy and numeracy
critically discuss pedagogical approaches to teaching 7-10 Technologies subjects including the management and use of appropriate resources and WH&S relevant to Technologies (including those to support literacy and numeracy) and the integration of ICT
develop teaching strategies for access and inclusivity in the classroom including those required to meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, NESB students, students with special needs and the literacy and numeracy needs of students
develop project-based programs, units of work and lesson plans for sequential learning that encourage creativity and innovation and include literacy and numeracy learning combined with design fair, reliable and valid assessment tasks both for learning and of learning
