LEVEL 1 DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES RESOURCES

AS 91877 (DT 1.1 – 3 credit internal)

Develop a proposal for a digital outcome

For this resource students investigate the components that make up a custom-built computer, including hardware and software, and then develop a solution for a given end user. Comprehensive self-teaching notes are included to teach students what they need to know. These notes and assessment can be taught alongside DT 1.6 AS91822 (Develop a computer System), or separately. (Note: 91877 is a theoretical standard – they don’t actually need computer parts)

Combined Self-Teaching Notes and Assessment ($275 plus GST)

AS 91878 & AS 91879 (DT 1.2 – 3 credit internal and DT 1.3 – 4 credit internal)

Develop a design for a digital outcome
Develop a digital outcome to manage data

The integrated self-teaching notes cover both standards 91878 and 91879 – design and development of a digital outcome. In the tutorial and teaching notes students gather data in a survey, configure a flatfile (Google spreadsheet), store the data in a table, query the data and then design and develop a digital outcome (infographic) using the queries to provide the information for the infographic. There is an integrated assessment activity that assesses against both achievement standards. Students need a Google account and then can access the free apps used for the tutorial – Google Forms for the survey to collect the data, Google Sheets for the flatfile to store the data and create queries and Google Drawings for the infographic designs and finished infographic.

Combined Self-Teaching Notes and Assessment ($475 plus GST)

AS 91880 (DT 1.4 – 4 credit internal) Web Site Design

Develop a digital media outcome

The tutorial and assessment resource teaches students how to combine two types of digital media by embedding images into web pages using the text editor, Notepad ++, to combine HTML code and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to produce three web pages. Image-editing software such as GIMP or more specialist software such as Photoshop, or even a free online photo editor such as Pixlr Editor can be used to edit images for insertion into the web site.

Combined Self-Teaching Notes and Assessment ($275 plus GST)

AS 91880 (DT 1.4 – 4 credit internal) Desktop Publishing

Develop a digital media outcome

This resource involves the creation of printed material using desktop publishing. The tutorial and assessment assumes knowledge of DTP via any software you choose, but teaches how to effectively produce quality desktop published documents.

Combined Self-Teaching Notes and Assessment ($275 plus GST)

AS 91881 (DT 1.5 – 6 credit internal)

Develop an electronics outcome

This resource uses a low priced Arduino kit and the free software Kittenblock (similar to Scratch but adds Arduino) to design and create electronic circuits. The easy to read tutorial leads students through the theoretical and practical parts of this standard, and the assessment and supporting files clearly measure and assess student achievement.

Combined Self-Teaching Notes and Assessment ($275 plus GST)

AS 91882 (DT 1.6 – 4 credit internal)

Develop a computer system

Students are taught to demonstrate and understand computer parts and then dismantle and rebuild a computer, testing it and fixing it for a customer. Students will need an old “working” computer that they can dismantle, rebuild and install Windows 7 onto. These notes and assessment can be taught alongside DT 1.1 AS91877 (Develop a proposal for a digital outcome), or separately. (Note: 91877 is a theoretical standard – they don’t actually need computer parts – but here they do)

Combined Self-Teaching Notes and Assessment ($275 plus GST)

AS 91883 (DT 1.7 – 4 credit internal)

AS 91901 (DT 3.2 – 3 credit internal)         

Apply user experience methodologies to develop a design for a digital technologies outcome

These teaching notes cover the application of user experience methodologies in developing a design for a website.  For students going on to study for the practical standard AS91903 Use complex techniques to develop a digital media outcome this is a good introduction. The design produced in this assessment could be integrated with AS91901, in which the student goes on to develop the website based on the design.  In addition to standard MS Office software, students are expected to create user flow diagrams and prototype designs. In this tutorial we have used MS Visio to produce the User Flows and a free but fully featured version of the leading prototyping tool Mockplus. Mockplus comes with a free 15-day license and is easy to learn with many first class online tutorials.

AS 91902 (DT 3.3 – 4 credit internal)  Available NOW

Use complex techniques to develop a database

As they work through the easy to read the tutorial, students learn the necessary skills/knowledge to effectively build a MySQL database, with the complex media outcome is chosen being a dynamic website. These commonly form the backbone of online commerce and include eCommerce websites (online shopping), content management systems (CMS), interactive image galleries, blogs, discussion forums and online databases, so are very relevant. The authoring tool used is the popular text editor Notepad++, but any text editor or specialist web authoring tool can also be used in conjunction with the tutorial. A web server (Apache), database (MySQL/MariaDB) and PHP server-side scripting language are needed, in addition to standard MS Office and image editing software. These allow you to develop and test a dynamic website on a local machine or desktop without needing to go online. Note, the web server, database and PHP are all packaged together in XAMPP which can be downloaded and installed on a student’s PC. This process is straightforward and comprehensive instructions are given. Students then use what they have learnt to complete the assessment.

Use complex techniques to develop a digital media outcome

This resource covers the complex concepts of digital media that need to be considered when designing and developing a dynamic website, which are the backbone of online commerce.  The teaching notes give students an opportunity to add a fully functioning front end on the dynamic website developed in the teaching notes provided with our resource for AS91902.  However, for students who have not yet completed AS91902 this tutorial will provide an introduction to some of the complex tools and techniques involved in dynamic websites including scripting to manipulate content (PHP/JavaScript), dynamic data handling and interaction between user and content.  The resource can be used as stand alone for 91903 or in combination with our resource for 91902, skipping some of the material already covered there.  The authoring tool used for this tutorial is Notepad++, but any text editor or specialist web authoring tool can also be used in conjunction with the tutorial.  Students also need a webserver (Apache), database (MySQL/MariaDB) and PHP server-side scripting language to allow them to develop and test a dynamic website on a local machine or desktop without needing to go online.  The webserver, database and PHP are all packaged together in XAMPP which can be downloaded and installed on a student’s PC free – instructions provided.
