Level 1 Digital Technologies Teaching Inquiry

The focus of inquiry for 2016 was with my Level 1 DTY students,I taught one class at school and one class online through FarNet.  I was particularly interested to find out how effective my assessments were in terms of students’interest and engagement.   In previous years I had observed the single outcome assessments (which were provided by the previous Head of Department) were not always enjoyed by students and they struggled to see the relevance.  In discussion with a colleague from another school I tried a multi-outcome assessment in term two and the results were encouraging.  Students enjoyed having a choice around not only the topic but also with how they presented their work.  Achievement Standard 91047 requires students to develop a digital prototype to address a brief using this assessment.
