ACS ICT Educators is a program that supports teachers to build confidence and knowledge to deliver the Digital Technologies Curriculum across Australia. ACS has created a selection of resources that target F-10 teachers. Resources are aimed at teachers to help them unpack the curriculum topics and help them understand the curriculum expectation at each year level. Lesson plans and units of work showcase ideas on how to implement the Digital Technologies Curriculum. These lessons implement skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration and student driven learning.
