Technology in action provides students with the opportunity to apply critical thinking and creative problem solving strategies to authentic, real world problems. It is never static but influenced by - and in turn impacts on - the cultural, ethical, environmental, political and economic conditions of the day. Technology education provides opportunities for students to be confident, connected, lifelong learners who are well equipped to contribute to a thriving and prosperous economy. It plays a critical role in equipping youth with the necessary skills to succeed in a digital era. Check out how some of the recent graduates of Carmel College are applying the skills and knowledge they developed in technology to their study and careers:

What do you do on an average work day? There’s no such thing as an average workday for me! I do many varied tasks and jobs ranging from working with developers on website development, to planning out UX [user experience] and UI [user interface] designs, to social media marketing and working in the communities. It really depends on the needs of the business and what the priorities are at the time. I also make a point everyday to do some physical exercise; whether that be yoga, netball, tennis or simply walking to work and enjoying the view along the way. What did you study at school? My favourite subjects at high school were media, art and sport. However mum is a teacher (and has been for a long time) so I was always moving across different subjects because I knew that maths and English were important.
