What are Digital Technologies?

In the new Victorian Curriculum, we are going to exploring how digital technologies work and the science behind them.

Rather than just using my  beautiful new MacBook Pro. I might start thinking about how the information gets to my MacBook or how MacBooks are actually made.

Previous curriculum focuses have included:

  • Digital Literacies – being able to use technology effectively and safel
  • Information Literacy – a process for acquiring, sharing, presenting and evaluating new knowledge.

Digitech is concerned with:

  • how digital technologies work
  • how they are created
  • the thinking required to create digital technologies.

Computational thinking is the way of thinking needed to solve problems and create solutions with digital technologies.
