Computer Science

"Computer science is the operating system for all innovation"    Steve Ballmer

What should I have already achieved?

Ideally you have taken Digital Programming or Digital Media for a semester in Level 1 or have gained  NCEA Level 1 literacy.  

You will have the willingness to give it a go and think analytically and have some computational thinking ideas because everything we do is logical and follows computational thinking steps.

What will I learn?

You will be learning how to apply advanced processes to develop a digital technologies outcome - this being advance computer program using python and how to use advanced techniques to develop a digital media outcome. 

How will this course be assessed?

You will be assessed on the Web Development standard along with Python Programming which will be done with the Advanced Processes standard. The External Standard being a summary of what you have done to develop any of the digital outcomes.

Will there be any FAO?  (Further Assessment Opportunities)

A further assessment opportunity will NOT be available as all assessments are projects based and will be completed over a period of time with several checkpoints on the way.

Then you really need to tell yourself that.......
