These resources illustrate how the National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions can be used with Digital Technologies to support student progress in literacy and numeracy. This advice:

  • identifies the sub-elements of the progressions that are most relevant to studying Digital Technologies
  • identifies some aspects of an achievement standard that include literacy or numeracy demands
  • lists some relevant indicators at one or more levels of the progressions to illustrate how the progressions might be unpacked to support student progress in literacy and numeracy in the study of Digital Technologies.
