NCEA Level 1 Digital Technologies - Product Design Technologies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Creighton

Product design technologies brings together a range of learning areas such as creative design, science, engineering, business studies, digital media, computing, electronics, materials technologies and entrepreneurship in one project-based learning environment.
Product Design Course overview.

This course provides an opportunity for both traditional technologies like web development, databases, software design/programming, multimedia, animation/3D modelling, video, graphic design, as well as emerging technologies like Virtual/Augmented reality. This course is well supported with cutting-edge equipment, like Laser cutters, CNC machines, 3D printers. When you study here, you’ll see how collaboration truly helps to create ideas that shape our world.

Students are introduced to and and use Design Thinking to define a project of interest, identify and develop skills relevant to that project and then work to develop an outcome. Students will also have the opportunity to work together in multi-discipline teams and with a wide range of people throughout the project i.e. other students, teachers, other professional adults as required.

The range of contexts, project options and technical skills are wide and primarily driven by the students' needs. Examples of student work from this course.

This course has strong links with the Product Design course taught at the University of Canterbury and students are also encouraged to exhibit their work for scholarship, and other competitions such as BrightSparks, Science Fair, Inspire Foundation, Callaghan Innovation.

The standards used for assessment draw from the Technology domain, are negotiable, and will be customised to suit individual student projects. A selection of some of the available credits are shown below.
