Digital Technologies / Levels 7 and 8 / Creating Digital Solutions
Content description
Evaluate how well student-developed solutions and existing information systems meet needs, are innovative and take account of future risks and sustainability
Elaborations
  1. comparing student-developed solutions with existing solutions that solve similar problems, for example identifying differences in the user interface of two adventure games and explaining how these differences affect the usability or appeal of the game
  2. judging the quality of a student-developed solution based on specific criteria such as meeting an economic need or contributing to social sustainability
  3. investigating what features of touch input rather than keyboard or mouse input contribute to their success in meeting a wide range of needs, for example mimicking a common movement such as expanding or contracting a hand to change the size of an object on screen, suits users with a range of dexterity
  4. evaluating the success of information systems in meeting an economic, environmental or social objective, for example interviewing a local business owner to find out how effectively their information system supports a business objective such as increasing market share
  5. considering the effects of e-waste on societies and environments, for example the impacts of toxic chemicals when hardware is disposed of, and the practice of dumping unwanted digital systems overseas, particularly in the Asia region
  6. comparing cloud-based information systems to client-based information systems on the basis of security of transmitted and stored data and energy costs
