NEW 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)

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.

Demonstrate understanding of complex concepts of digital media 

Implement complex procedures to produce a specified digital media outcome

This resource integrates 3.42 and 3.43and includes an in depth tutorial on Photoshop, XML and InDesign. Photoshop (for image editing) and InDesign (for Desktop Publishing) are two market leading programs in their fields used by professionals the world over. For students considering a career in digital design, experience with one or both programs is a prerequisite. Once students have completed the tutorial they will then be ready to be assessed on both standards.  The final catalogue created can be exported to a web page (html) as well as to pdf from InDesign.

Do I need the latest versions and how do I get them? 

The tutorial has been written for version CS6 of both products, however, because only the basic tools are covered, and these have not changed much over the years, it is also suitable for earlier versions.  Pre-CS versions of Photoshop are okay back to about PS6. Because the InDesign section covers XML import, students will need access to InDesign CS2 onwards

Although they can be purchased as standalone products these applications are not cheap.  Currently the best option for schools is the Creative Cloud under a volume license for schools, or a monthly hire at about A$25 per student/teacher. This equates to 80% off the standard retail price. All Adobe products are included and individual purchases are free for the first month.

Combined Self-Teaching Notes and Assessment for both standards  ($375 plus GST)

 

The desktop publishing version of AS91634/5 (Photoshop/InDesign) contains teaching notes for the practical only. However the introduction to 91635 contains this explanatory note…

“The theoretical component of the standard covers similar material to AS91634 – Demonstrate understanding of complex concepts of digital media. Assessments for both standards are provided with this tutorial and it is recommended AS91634 is undertaken following the completion of this standard as the practical skills acquired during the tutorial will assist the student’s own research into the subject matter for AS91634”

In other words the expectation is that students working through the teaching notes will pick up sufficient theory to undertake 91634
