Subject Overview:

This subject allows students with little formal arts backgrounds to explore creativity, design and innovation through the arts (music, drama and visual art) using digital technologies.

Learning Outcomes:

Students will have:

  • An enhanced understanding and critical awareness of the nature of creativity, design and digital technologies;
  • The ability to design a digital technology project that incorporates students’ original compositions;
  • An enhanced capacity to undertake independent research including the ability to seek out and utilise new technologies;
  • An enhanced capacity to apply imaginative, creative and innovative approaches to a given project;
