Developing new post-compulsory courses: Applied Information Technology and Computer Science.

In the wake of the post-compulsory review in Western Australia two new courses of study are being developed for Years 11 and 12: Applied Information Technology and Computer Science. This has given a unique opportunity to address emerging issues from the very successful existing subjects and to ensure they are best configured to match the needs of students and changes in school environments. At the same time it has provided a forum within which to re-explore the place of ICT in Technology Education and the relationship of learning outcomes to study in ICT. There are some profound changes evident in these courses compared with what we have done in the past. It is important that we get these changes right at these early stages to successfully migrate all teachers and students to the new courses later in the decade. This paper presents information on the current drafts of the courses and discusses the issues addressed in writing the courses.
