Key concepts in the Digital Technologies Curriculum: Specification (including user stories), Impact and Computational Thinking

This session is part of a series of facilitated feedback gathering sessions for the ACARA review of the Australian Curriculum.

We are collecting feedback from teachers across Australia on proposed changes to the Digital Technologies subject, Technologies learning area and Digital Literacy capability, and any other related areas of the curriculum

We will be compiling this into a unified response that will capture the most pressing issues identified by teachers, and present solutions to address your concerns. We want you to be involved. We also encourage teachers who are planning to make their own submissions to attend and share their views.
