Learning Experience

Designing for social impact 

Students choose a social issue and use design thinking and technological tools to develop innovative solutions that address the chosen issue. This could involve designing a mobile app, creating a data-driven awareness campaign, or building a tech-powered platform for resource sharing.


Exploring the ethical implications of AI 

Students delve into the complex world of artificial intelligence, examining its potential benefits and risks. They learn about ethical considerations like bias, privacy, and job displacement, and explore ways to develop and use AI responsibly.


Bridging the digital divide

 Students identify communities or individuals lacking access to technology and develop projects or initiatives to bridge the digital divide, such as organising workshops on basic computer skills, creating accessible online resources, or designing technology-based solutions for specific needs.

Key Strands

Computing Systems

Computing systems are the foundation of the digital world. Students explore hardware, software, and data, gaining a deep understanding of the architecture of computing systems. They learn how these elements work together to execute tasks and solve problems.

Data Analysis & Networks

Mastering data analysis skills is essential in today’s data-driven world. Students learn to collect, store, and analyse data using powerful tools and techniques, and design and implement networks for seamless communication and data exchange.

Algorithms and Programming

Programming is the key to unlocking the power of technology. Students learn to design and implement algorithms, develop programming skills using various languages, and create software solutions. They progress from beginner-friendly languages to more advanced ones.

Digital Literacy & Society

In today’s digital world, it’s essential to navigate the online landscape safely, ethically, and effectively. Students learn about digital citizenship, online identity and privacy protection, and how technology can be used to address global challenges and promote responsible digital innovation.

Practices

LEARN

Inquire – Students learn to ask critical questions, evaluate diverse information sources, master data analysis, and navigate ambiguity. This cultivates curiosity and insight, enabling them to challenge assumptions and make informed decisions in complex situations.

THINK

Critical Thinking, Connect and Reflect – Encouraging diverse perspectives, critical analysis, reflection on personal growth, and openness to new ideas fosters critical thinking and innovation. Students develop a sharp eye for bias and a mindset geared towards continuous improvement.

DO

Care, Communicate, Collaborate, Create – Applying their learning and thinking. students strive to create positive change. They emphasise collaboration, Leveraging diverse perspectives, and devising innovative solutions. The goal is to address societal challenges, fostering inclusive, equitable, and culturally sensitive outcomes for meaningful societal impact.
