The Digital Technologies Hub was launched in 2016 to support the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. It has resources for teachers, students, school leaders and families. Educators can browse topics as a way to familiarise themselves with this new curriculum, lesson ideas for ideas how to teach it, and webinars, case studies and advice from teachers who have made a difference in their schools implementing the AC Digital Technologies curriculum. Students can find out about fun projects to develop their digital technologies skills and capabilities. Families can find out more about this new curriculum and what it means for their child.
The Hub was commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training. Its goals are:
Education Services Australia developed both the educational and technical solutions for the Hub.
ESA managed content delivery, curation and creation, identifying and leading work with subject matter experts in digital technologies and pedagogies. During development, ESA consulted a broad range of stakeholders, including representatives from all states and territories, the Catholic and independent sectors and the Australian Government.
ESA also implemented the technical solution for the Hub. The website uses the Sitefinity content management system, and ESA created customised templates for the site.
