Australian Curriculum : Digital Technologies

You may have missed it. ACARA put out a video explaining Digital Technologies in our new Australian curriculum. computational thinkingIt is about giving our students the skills, thinking and tools to comfortably sit in a digital world and understand the implications of that. It is the thinking which is important. ACARA has tried to focus on that and show a way to develop that because if we don’t have students who are hurting their heads with learning and who are not engaged in explicit interaction with technology then we won’t be moving anywhere. To me, Associate Professor Paul Newhouse sums it all up well. We have to be able to collaborate. We have to be able to find digital solutions to problems facing us in workplaces and organisations which are all part of a global movement now. Associate Professor Paul Newhouse is right. We need to engender knowledge, disposition and concepts all of which are readily available and highlighted in our national curriculum. The fact we look at general competencies and put ICT there means ACARA acknowledges technology is there and integral to all we do now.
