Digital Technologies and ICT capabilities are now requirements in schools, and there are many opportunities to incorporate both across multiple learning areas.
In this webinar, Catherine Newington from the Australian Computing Society will show you practical examples for addressing both the Digital Technologies curriculum and ICT capabilities in Primary and Secondary classroom contexts. Catherine will showcase samples of lesson ideas taken from a series she has produced for DLTV in cooperation with other subject associations, DigiTech and ICT Across The Curriculum.
