Learning in the technologies enables pupils to:

  • develop an 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 my life, the lives of others and the environment
  • gain the confidence and skills to embrace and use technologies now and in the future, at home, at work and in the wider community
  • become an informed consumer and producer who has an appreciation of the merits and impacts of products and services
  • be capable of making reasoned choices relating to the environment, sustainable development and ethical, economic and cultural issues
  • broaden understanding of the role that information and communications technology (ICT) has in Scotland and in the global community
  • broaden awareness of how ideas in mathematics and science are used in engineering and the technologies
  • experience work-related learning, and establish firm foundations for lifelong learning, and specialised study and careers.

We are currently looking to developing digital literacy.

Technology can be taught either discreetly ( only looking at the Experiences and Outcomes within technology) or in an interdisciplinary way
