The aim of this course is to prepare graduates to implement the Technologies Learning Area of the Australian Curriculum. Pre-service educators in this course will develop an understanding of the two distinct but related subjects in the Technologies learning area (Design and Technologies and Digital Technologies) through an interdisciplinary approach from F - year 6. The key ideas and concepts of the curriculum are central to understanding its entire scope and sequence. They also provide the contexts through which the particular knowledge and understanding, processes and production skills are developed. The effective teaching and learning of Technologies will be aligned to the signature pedagogy of inquiry and the questions and skills that are its foundation. Pre-service educators will embed the Cross-Curriculum Priorities and General Capabilities, when designing from the Australian Curriculum, to integrate them into a teaching and learning sequence. Technologies draws on learners' growing experience of community and the wider world and skills of the 21st Century focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) subjects.
