Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies
Resources on the Digital Technologies Hub are currently mapped to Australian Curriculum Version 8.4. This will be maintained while AC V9.0 is progressively implemented across Australia. Work is underway to map the website and resources to AC V9.0.
The Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies includes the essential learning area content that teachers should teach and that we want students to learn. Opportunities to enrich and enhance learning are indicated through general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities.
View the curriculum for Digital Technologies V9.0 for the essential knowledge, skills, procedures and processes for each year level, Foundation to Year 10.
Content in Digital Technologies is organised under 2 related strands:

The Processes and production skills strand comprises 7 sub-strands: Acquiring, managing and analysing data; Investigating and defining; Generating and designing; Producing and implementing; Evaluating; Collaborating and managing; and Privacy and security.
