Sharing content and collaborating

Overview

This unit introduces students to using the basic features of common digital tools to share content and collaborate. Students learn about using appropriate behaviours when working with others and sharing content. They also access school computer systems safely.

By the end of Year 2 students use the basic features of common digital tools to create, locate and share content, and to collaborate, following agreed behaviours.

  • identify features of common digital tools
  • describe how to use features of common digital tools for a particular purpose
  • collaborate with others to complete a task using common digital tools, applying agreed behaviours.

Sharing content and collaboratingImage

Use the Seesaw activity: What is a Bee-Bot? to assess students’ skills, knowledge and processes related to the use of common digital systems for a purpose. In this task students work collaboratively to use the Seesaw application to add words to describe a photo of a Bee-Bot, and use the microphone to explain how a Bee-Bot works.

Use these rubrics to assess students’ proficiency in:

  • use of common digital tools
  • knowledge of agreed class behaviours and collaborating and applying those behaviours
  • accessing school computer systems safely.

Common digital systems we use

What is this about?

Students develop skills in working together on a digital task that uses features of common digital tools. They develop an understanding of the need to apply agreed behaviours to help ensure respectful behaviour in group situations and working safely online. They develop their ability to navigate school computer systems securely. Students can work collaboratively on a task; for example, using word processing or presentation software, or other applications on which they can take turns working on the same document or digital environment.
