The Technologies Learning Area is a highly practical area in which students are encouraged to express themselves and develop skills in decision making and problem solving through the media of foods, textiles, wood, metal, information technology and digital imaging. It provides students with opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in a practical and enterprising way, using a variety of resources.
Activities in this Learning Area involve ‘enterprise’, which is the ability to identify needs and opportunities through a variety of situations and to take action that will be of benefit to society and the individual.
