Technologies

Learning in the technologies will enable children and young people to be informed, skilled, thoughtful, adaptable and enterprising citizens, and to:

• develop a considered understanding of the role and impact of technologies in changing and influencing societies
• contribute to building a better world by taking responsible, ethical actions to improve their lives, the lives of others and the environment
• gain the skills and confidence to embrace and use technologies now and in the future, at home, at work and in the wider community
• become informed consumers and producers who have an appreciation of the merits and impacts of products and services.
• be capable of making reasoned choices relating to the environment, sustainable development and ethical, economic and cultural issues
• broaden their understanding of the role that information and communications technology (ICT) has in Scotland and in the global community
• experience work-related learning, establish firm foundations for lifelong learning and, for some, specialised study and a diverse range of careers
