Technological and Applied Studies
Tammy teaches TAS from Year 7 to 10.
What we do
The aim of TAS in Years 7–8 is to develop students’ ability to design, produce and evaluate quality solutions that respond to identified opportunities and needs. It enables students to justify solutions and to responsibly, safely and creatively use and select materials, tools and techniques.
Students in Year 7 and 8 are learning to use computer technology to convey a message and produce a “communication” product. Year 7 are focusing on using Microsoft Publisher to produce promotional material designed to sway the mindset of a stakeholder. Year 8 are becoming proficient at using Microsoft Powerpoint to produce a product that is designed to aid a person with a learning or physical disability.
As the semester progresses they will continue this use this design procedure to successfully produce products using other technology mediums.
