Digital Technologies / Levels 7 and 8 / Creating Digital Solutions
Content description
Define and decompose real-world problems taking into account functional requirements and sustainability (economic, environmental, social), technical and usability constraints
  1. determining the factors that influence proposed solution ideas, for example user age affects the language used for instructions, dexterity affects the size of buttons and links, hearing or vision loss influence captioned or audio-described multimedia as alternative ways that common information is presented on a website
  2. investigating types of environmental constraints on solutions, for example reducing energy consumption and on-screen output of solutions
  3. identifying that problems can be decomposed into sub elements, for example creating a decision tree to represent the breakdown and relationships of sub elements to the main problem or identifying the elements of game design such as characters, movements, collisions and scoring
  4. starting from a simplified system, gradually increase complexity until a model of a real-world system is developed, and record the difficulties associated with each stage of development
