Digital Technologies

The Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies provides opportunities for students to use multimedia as they work on creating digital solutions. The subject helps students to become innovative creators of digital solutions, effective users of digital systems, and critical consumers of information conveyed by digital systems. As they learn in Digital Technologies students can use multimedia to communicate, connect and create. These projects also provide opportunities for students to collaborate ethically across local, regional and global contexts.
