Curriculum - Technology & Enterprise

Welcome to the Technologies and Enterprise page!

The Technologies Curriculum is delivered through two distinct but related subjects: Design and Technologies and Digital Technologies. Students will develop skills to manage projects, apply computational, design and systems thinking to create solutions now, that can be used in the future.

The Western Australian Curriculum: Technologies aims to develop the knowledge, understandings and skills to ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students:

  • investigate, design, plan, manage, create and evaluate solutions are creative, innovative and enterprising when using traditional, contemporary and emerging technologies, and understand how technologies have developed over time
  • make informed and ethical decisions about the role, impact and use of technologies in the economy, environment and society for a sustainable future
  • engage confidently with and responsibly select and manipulate appropriate technologies − materials, data, systems, components, tools and equipment − when designing and creating solutions
  • critique, analyse and evaluate problems, needs or opportunities to identify and create solutions.

At North Tom Price Primary School we have a wide range of resources to assist in the delivery of this part of the Curriculum. This includes;

  • iPads for all teachers
  • 6 iPads per classroom from Year 1 - 3

  • 2 x computer labs
  • access to an ICT technician 1 1/2 days per week
  • smart boards in each classroom

Our school is a member of the Alannah and Madeline Foundation eSmart Schools program which teaches students to be smart, safe and responsible on the Internet.
