​People in all cultures and contexts are affected by the pervasiveness, impact and opportunities of technological change and development. Technology education plays a vital role in preparing students to appropriately respond to technical advances and to shape technological futures. It provides the means to extend human capabilities to solve problems and to improve the human condition.

Design Technology at Ferny Grove SHS is a broad field of study that draws from a range of disciplines and community activities including engineering, manufacturing and hospitality. Technology is used to design products, processes and services to meet human needs and wants, capitalise on opportunities and extend human capabilities. Technological products, processes and services have impacts and consequences on individuals, local and global communities, and environments.

The purpose of technology education in schools is to enable students to use technology successfully, responsibly and creatively. By working technologically, students develop knowledge and understanding and ways of working to expand their capabilities as confident, critical and creative designers and users of technology.
