Subject outline

This is a cornerstone subject in which all first year education students will develop core knowledge and skills required to learn through digital platforms. In the formation of knowledge the theories that underpin learning in the digital world will be explored. Foundational understandings of digital competencies, literacy, creativity and collaboration skills will be addressed through a variety of applications. Students will learn how to work in the digital space in a safe, ethical and responsive manner as citizens of learners in the global space. Multimodal and visual literacies will be introduced as digital platforms which support the acquisition of new knowledge. Students will establish an Digital Evidentiary Portfolio that will be a portal to document learning.
