Level 2 Digital Information Technology
Teacher in Charge: T. Chisholm
This course builds on DTI101 and focusses on Digital Information and Media. We will use a range of software applications (i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign) to create original content. Specifically in this course we will plan and create a detailed infographic. We will also create a website. Our focus is on ensuring that our outcomes are easy to use and contain original artwork. Good design habits play an important part in what we do and you will learn how to create print and online media that could be used in the real world.
In the external we will write a summary on how we developed either our infographic or website.
