Many of you in the community here have probably come across the online CS Curriculum Discoveries Guide which contains numerous units and lesson plans around coding and developing apps. It is not mapped to ACARA, but can be tweaked quite easily to align. For the unit 5 section of this MOOC I found the paper prototype lesson plan really valuable to scaffold students through the design process after they have settled on an app idea. In a subsequent lesson I would conduct a peer review lesson where teams would switch there paper prototype with other teams for feedback to act on in a debugging process. Link included in this post but I would recommend checking out a few of the other lesson plans provided for this course as many of them complement the year 7&8 DT topic well.
