Case studies - Digital Technologies school implementation

These snapshots from 2020-2021 provide examples of how a range of Victorian schools are implementing delivery and assessment of the Digital Technologies learning area.

Each snapshot includes:

  • key information and video interviews
  • implementation documents in a common format
  • advice from DLTV and Australian Computer Society (ACS)


Please note, this project is still underway, with school snapshots being added over the course of 2021.
