Time slot: 

Thursday 2 October 1:45 pm - 2:30 pm


Meeting Room 2


  • Innovative Learning


This session focuses on the nature of, and relationship between the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies, a subject within the Technologies Learning Area, and the general capability of ICT. While there are connections between the two, there are many differences. The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) assigns a different status to each, and in essence they serve quite different purposes. This session explores the nature of each, their relationship and implications for curriculum planning.
