Topics will include:

  • Computer programming
  • Core Computer Science concepts
  • Databases
  • Proposal development
  • Iterative process to develop a digital outcome


  • Planning and documenting computer solutions to a problem
  • Creating simple computer programs
  • Working with indexed data structures and or functions
  • Testing procedures
  • Combining and managing information from different sources and software
  • Computational Thinking and algorithm design
  • Problem solving through the technological process

It is expected that students will engage with their projects beyond class time.

Students may not enter both DTP101 and ELE101 because of overlapping standards.

Where Does It Lead:

Year 12 Digital Technologies (Programming) DTP201
