The emphasis of IT courses is on students learning to solve problems, accomplish tasks, and express creativity, both individually and collaboratively. Students will learn to use today’s technology for tasks relevant to industry applications. More importantly, students will learn to adapt to change and be able to independently learn and use new technology as it evolves throughout their lives. Each student should be knowledgeable about technology, be able to use technology readily and effortlessly, and be able to make decisions about her or his use of technology.
Our Information Technology area provides students with opportunity to train, using the computer, in different areas of business and industry. Students will use software that is industry standard in order to gain experience for a workplace and for post-secondary training. The work place is increasingly technology dependent and those who understand and are able to use the technology will have the greatest access to success.
It is recommended that all students explore the area of information technology by enrolling in a basic technology prerequisite.
Students will be required to complete at least 8 credits over the course of the program to qualify for the Senior Years Technology Education Diploma.
