This is intended to be a whole year course where we plan, design and create Digital projects that meet the needs of people in your world. You don’t need to stay for the whole year and you could join at any point in the year.

If you are someone who likes creating digitally this is the course for you... in the past students have created websites, learnt to code, worked with graphic design programmes, created apps, designed with animation, created 3D images and objects… I’d love to see some of us using the laser printer and the CNC router and the software to support this and maybe playing with Augmented Reality.

This is a course to follow your passions and interests, it's not about me standing at the front lecturing to everyone about how amazing Microsoft Word is. Come with some specific ideas, and let’s create a plan of what you would like to achieve and how you are going to get there. You will want to self manage your way through a project, gathering the skills and information to be able to create something amazing, you should be willing to contact and work with outside experts and resources and be willing to share your learning pathways with others.

On a number of occasions in each block we will be visiting Industry experts on location or on site at school. I am wanting to investigate together what is out in the community that could open up possibilities for you in the future. I would love to gather your voice about the sorts of things/places you would like to see and really make this about you and what you're interested in.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION…

* You are going to need access to your own device (capable of working on your project)

* This is absolutely not a "gaming" or "watching Youtube" course! You will be expected to create something that you are proud of and be willing to share with others along your journey.
