How to audit school resources

To effectively implement a whole-school Digital Technologies program, you must identify the resources that you have and those that will be required, both physical and human.

While we have identified technology as a focus of the audit, schools should be aware that much of the Digital Technologies curriculum can be introduced using an unplugged approach. Often the concept that is the focus of the lesson can be introduced without technology (unplugged).

An outstanding resource to view is CS Unplugged which identifies key concepts of the Digital Technologies curriculum with novel ways to introduce these without the use of technology.

You can also search the DT Hub for unplugged activities using the site’s search. The Bebras Australia Computational Thinking Challenge also provides challenges that can be completed online or provided to students as printed worksheets.

Grok Academy also provides unplugged resources.
