At Rosehill Secondary College students are given the opportunity to study a range of Technology subjects in accordance with both the Victorian Essential Learning Standards and the VCE.
All Technology units involve experiential, practical and applied knowledge as well as theoretical understanding. Students design, create and evaluate processes, products and technological systems using a range of materials as a way of developing creativity and innovation. Students develop skills in managing and manipulating materials and resources using a range of tools, equipment and machines to make functional physical products or systems. Students are encouraged to be independent and creative problem-solvers, as individuals and as members of a team.
Learning in the Technology key learning area is often structured around ‘design briefs’. These provide students with real life and lifelike problem solving situations to which they can respond.
