The Upcoming Digital Technologies curriculum is an exciting and challenging prospect. It identifies key skills and concepts that learners will develop throughout their time at school from the foundation level up. Many teachers will be learning this alongside their students. Below is a professional learning opportunity that is designed to give teachers a head start and provide valuable information and resources in implementing the Digital Technologies curriculum in schools and the classroom.
