Technology is intervention by design. It uses intellectual and practical resources to create technological outcomes, which expand human possibilities by addressing needs and realising opportunities.
At Birkenhead College the Technology Department uses design to allow learners to create successfully through innovation and adaptation. The use of creative and critical thinking provides an excellent framework for ethical and often sustainable designs.
Technology makes enterprising use of knowledge, skills and practices for exploration and communication, some specific to areas within technology and some from other disciplines. These include digitally-aided design, programming, software development, various forms of technological modelling and visual literacy – the ability to make sense of images and the ability to make images that make sense.
