What's changed in the new Version 9 Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies?
What is Digital Literacy all about, and how is it different from ICT?
What are the new connections with other learning areas like Mathematics?
Co-hosted by DLTV and Grok Academy, this series of short, weekly webinars will discuss the way the Digital Technologies learning area has evolved with the introduction of Australian Curriculum V9 in 2022, and also explore the general capability: Digital Literacy.
We've broken the DT topics into four main areas with titles familiar to Victorian teachers.
