At Lumen Christi, students are actively engaged in the processes of analysing problems and opportunities, designing, developing and evaluating digital solutions, and creating and sharing information that meets a range of current and future needs. Students learn to safely and ethically exploit the capacity of information systems to create digital solutions.
We aim to enable our students to become confident and creative developers of digital solutions through the application of information systems and specific ways of thinking about problem solving.
The Victorian Curriculum – Digital Technologies has been designed to provide practical opportunities for students to explore the capacity of information systems to systematically and innovatively transform data into digital solutions through the application of computational, design and systems thinking.
Students are exposed to a variety of learning opportunities to acquire a deep knowledge and understanding of digital systems, data and information and the processes associated with creating digital solutions. Preparing students to take up an active role in meeting current and future needs.

It enables and provides our students with the skills they require to be responsible, confident and capable global digital citizens.
