Students today are highly immersed in communications media well before entering the senior level courses Communications Technology. They bring with them digital experiences and technical skills of all sorts and levels. Because of this, more than ever, the role of teachers in Communications Technology has evolved. Teachers have become facilitators or guides as students work in project-driven environments to develop skills in creative problem solving, iteration, and critical thinking, and gain knowledge and develop sensitivity to issues around the environment, society, and technological innovation.

The Additional Qualifications course Communications Technology Grades 11 and 12 will give you the needed professional knowledge and guidance to further develop your teaching practice for these senior classrooms. Many activities and projects in the course mirror the curriculum expectations of your students as you learn in a collaborative, project-driven environment and reflect on your experiences.

• the supporting theory and practice around teaching strategies in Communications Technology
• designing a student-centred, collaborative, learning environment
• developing a program that engages with and develops partnerships within the school and surrounding community
