Technological practice

In the technological practice strand, the emphasis is on knowing how. Students are given opportunities to engage in their own technological practice and to reflect on the practice of others. 

Students gain a sense of what they may be able to achieve as they undertake their own technological practice to find solutions to identified needs and/or realise opportunities. Their practice is enhanced as they embed philosophical ideas encountered in the nature of technology and technological knowledge strands.
