The aim of Computing Applications is to develop students' capacity to be critical, ethical, competent and confident users of information and communication technologies in order to participate in a range of work, study and other life situations.
Through the study of Computing Applications students will develop:
- skills in, and understanding of, a range of computer software and related terminology
- knowledge and understanding of the development of computer-based systems, their operations and functions
- skills in demonstrating the methods, processes and application of project management techniques to solve problems in a range of contexts

- skills in critical evaluation of the appropriateness of computer software in a variety of contexts.
A syllabus is a document that gives teachers an outline of what students are to be taught in a specific learning area.
