The Aims of Technology are:
At Arco Academy, our intent for teaching technology in computing encourages students to develop their problem-solving and critical thinking.
Students are offered the opportunity to further their knowledge of computers and machines controlled by software. This approach compliments and encourages each student to be creative and imaginative, as well as providing the tools to understand, build and use software.
By having a student-focused and tailored curriculum, our offer is structured so that students have a variety of accredited topics which will inspire, nurture and grow their computing skills.
Students may apply some of their earned units to other areas of interests and current affairs.
Using this framework, Arco Academy ensures that there is breadth and balance across the academic year; through the coverage of a wide range of topics which are relatable and bespoke. Offering the opportunity to transfer units also creates a culture of high engagement and legacy!
