The Technologies Curriculum team is excited about the launch of QUEST – a newly redesigned core Technologies subject in Years 7 and 8. Currently Design and Digital Technologies are taught as separate subject areas in the Middle School. It was our desire to develop an interdisciplinary program that encompassed the core principles of Project Based Learning (PBL). PBL is a student-centred teaching strategy that focuses on real-world problems and challenges using problem-solving, decision-making and investigative skills. Students will demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating public products and presentations for a real audience. As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.
Quest has engaged two external partners for this program:
2. Meals on Wheels (MOW) Moreton Bay Region is one of the local organisations that benefit from the produce grown. The purpose of MOW is to support well-nourished, independent, and connected communities through the delivery of a nutritious meal, social connection and a wellbeing check by our dedicated volunteer workforce. Students will be working with MOW chefs to cook and design healthy meals for their clients and explore the nutritional value of locally sourced produce and its impact on the clients. Further information and avenues to engage check out: Meals on Wheels Australia
Offering an opportunity for students to learn, while connecting with the community, will assist in further developing the skills of collaboration, resilience, problem solving and communication – essential skills which will help to future-proof learning experiences.
We are looking forward to the many opportunities for our Year 7 and 8 students to engage in a meaningful way with both organisations in 2023.
