  • 1. GRIFFITH INFOTECH HIGH SCHOOL PATHWAY PROGRAM School of Information and Communication Technology Griffith Sciences Contact School Administrative Officer Ph (07) 555 28542 Email ict-schooladminofficer-gc@griffith.edu.au Dr Wayne Pullan, Program Convenor Ph (07) 555 29002 Email w.pullan@griffith.edu.au
  • 2. Program Overview In partnership with the Griffith Sciences Group at Griffith University, a school pathway program called Griffith InfoTech can be offered to your Year 11 and 12 students. Griffith InfoTech provides an opportunity for students to study two core university courses that are embedded into the present Year 11 and 12 IPT subjects at your School. The program is an excellent opportunity for IPT students to experience university courses prior to the completion of their senior studies. You may care to stipulate if all students will be involved or only nominated/interested students from your school. Throughout Year 11 students will:    be taught the content of Griffith InfoTech 1 within the Year 11 IPT subject via lectures, discussions and workshops; Complete assessment items for Griffith InfoTech 1 at school; Attend a day excursion to Griffith University to have some exposure to the university environment (optional); Griffith University has agreed that all students who pass all requirements of Griffith InfoTech 1 will receive credit for the Griffith University first semester, first year ICT course 1001ICT Introduction to Programming upon entry to any Griffith University degree in which 100ICT is a core requirement (BInfoTech, BMultiMedia, BBusInfSys). Throughout Year 12 students will have the option to continue the program and will:    be taught the content of Griffith InfoTech 2 within the Year 12 senior IPT subject via lectures, discussions and workshops; Complete assessment items for Griffith InfoTech 2 at school; Attend a day excursion to Griffith University to have some exposure to the university environment (optional); Griffith University has agreed that all students who pass all requirements of Griffith InfoTech 2 will receive credit for the Griffith University second semester, first year ICT course 1005ICT Object-oriented Programming upon entry to any Griffith University program in which 1005ICT is a core requirement (BInfoTech, BMultiMedia). In addition, students who achieve an overall mark of 65% or higher in the assessment items for Griffith InfoTech 1, and who meet admission pre-requisites, will be eligible for guaranteed admission into one of the Griffith University degrees listed below, on the proviso that the degree is listed as the student’s first QTAC preference. Please be assured that the embedding of Griffith InfoTech into your School ‘s IPT courses will in no way be detrimental to the class results of students. If you have any queries or concerns regarding the Griffith InfoTech program then please contact our School Administration Officer or Griffith InfoTech Program Convenor.

  • 4. The Java Programming Laboratory (JPL) The two courses (1001ICT and 1005ICT) forming the Griffith InfoTech program are taught using the Java Programming Laboratory (JPL) system, an educational application designed to assist students learn Java as their first programming language. JPL provides an environment that allows students to develop their programming skills by starting with simple Java code fragments and slowly transitioning to complete Java programs. JPL is used for all weekly workshops and assessed labs for the 1001ICT Introduction to Programming and 1005ICT Object-Oriented Programming courses at the Griffith University Gold Coast Campus. JPL is installed in the ICT computer labs and can also be installed on students own computer for use outside the ICT computer labs. Essentially, high schools teach the content contained in JPL and complete the assessment items supplied by Griffith University. Two schools took part in the beta testing of JPL in the high school environment. They are Merrimac State High School (contact Daniel Ricardo,0414 821516) and Helensvale State High School (contact Paul Carr, 5573 8555). Both teachers are happy to talk to other Schools about Griffith InfoTech from a High School perspective. To try the JPL system: 1. Access the JPL website www.ict.griffith.edu.au/JPL where all the teaching materials are located. 2. If you to try the JPL problem solving environment then you can do one of two things: - from the Using JPL page on the website, download JPLIDE (password 1001ict) and run it. It will ask for a student number, just use s3000000 and select one of the Griffith InfoTech courses. - access www.ict.griffith.edu.u/webJPL which is a web-based interface to the JPL problem solving environment (use same password and student number as above). Our experience with the other high schools showed us that JPLIDE can be blocked by the QE firewall when used on a high school computer but webJPL is not blocked. However students can, for example use JPLIDE on their own computer at home and use webJPL at school - they see the same problems and the work they have done is visible in both. For further information about the JPL please contact the Griffith InfoTech Program Convenor directly, Dr Wayne, via email on w.pullan@griffith.edu.au or phone (07) 555 28761
