Year 10 ICT Digital Technology and the New Bendigo Technology School at LaTrobe University

in Senior School News

This year’s Year 10 ICT and Digital Media class have enjoyed their new chosen elective very much.

The students were captivated when seeing a real working example of an early Macintosh computer brought in for a class demonstration.

They were intrigued by the operating system, icons, early mouse and graphic user display (GUI). Many students were surprised to see that the main features of today’s GUI’s are not dissimilar.

Year 10 ICT students have immensely enjoyed designing and building their own websites this year. See some examples below of the students work.

Technology Schools are a new State Government initiative to have TEN leading edge schools and resource hubs built across the state.

At present a main multi-million dollar Technology School centre and Engineering complex is being built at Bendigo’s Latrobe University to foster STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) skills in the Bendigo School community. It’s part of a national drive to build knowledge and skills for Australia’s future and build an economy based on technology and innovation.
