Information Processes and Technology

Information Processes and Technology is a 2 unit course for each of Preliminary (Year 11) and HSC (Year 12). This is a Board Developed course.

The information processes and technology (IPT) Year 11 and 12 course, teaches students about information-based systems. It covers the processes of collecting, organising, analysing, storing and retrieving, processing, transmitting and receiving, and displaying, as well as the technologies that support them.

In the higher school certificate (HSC) course the students will learn about project management, information systems and databases, communication systems, multimedia systems, and transaction processing systems. Students will complete a major HSC project that will assess their practical and theoretical knowledge.

The aim of this course is to enable students to become confident, competent, discriminating and ethical users of hardware and software and to appreciate the effect of information systems on society. With this background, students will be well placed to adapt to new technologies as they emerge - a 21st Century Skill. Click Here for the full course details.
