This subject is one in a suite of three undergraduate Option units designed to provide a specialisation in the use of technologies for learning and learning design. This unit aims to develop a student’s content and pedagogical knowledge related to using coding as part of the Technologies curriculum. Students will cultivate content knowledge through developing an understanding of computational thinking, sequence, branching, and iteration as they design algorithms and code their solutions using programming environments commonly used in schools. Pedagogical content knowledge will be developed through students developing learning–experience implementation plans in the Technologies area for their own future students and appropriate to their degree (i.e. early childhood, primary or secondary).
