Agency - Insight/Foresight

A deep and enriching education in any genre of technology recognises the core role that knowledge, creative drive, and practical skills play in technological problem solving. The learner (as the agent of design) also brings to the process organisation, values and communication capability to achieve project outcomes that work in context.

Agency is symbolised by an EYE, to remind us that learning and creating technologies for various applications and contexts demands insight, as well as foresight and directed capabilities. The agency of the learner is both a key resource as well as a constraint to the success of a design and technology project.
