Technologies

The technologies framework has been organized to offer opportunities for personalization and choice using diverse contexts for learning.

The technologies framework has six organizers, namely:

  • technological developments in society
  • ICT to enhance learning
  • Business
  • Computing science
  • Food and textiles
  • Craft, design, engineering and graphics.

Learning in the technologies enables children and young people to be informed, skilled, thoughtful, adaptable and enterprising citizens, and to:

  • Develop understanding of the role and impact of technologies in changing and influencing societies
  • Contribute to building a better world by taking responsible ethical actions to improve their lives, the lives of others and the environment
  • Gain the skills and confidence¬† to embrace and use technologies now and in the future, at home, at work and in the wider community
  • Become informed consumers and producers who have an appreciation of the merits and impacts of products and services
  • Be caopable of making reasoned choices relating to the environment, to sustainable development and to ethical, economic and cultural issues
  • Broaden their understanding of the role that Information and Communication Technology has in Scotland and in the global community
  • Broaden their understanding of the applications and concepts behind rechnological thinking, including the nature of engineering and the links between the technologies and the sciences
  • Experience work-related learning, establish firm foundations for lifelong learning and, for some, for s[pecialised study and a diverse range of careers.
