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:

  • to provide high quality resources that are predominantly freely available for use by teachers and students, explicitly aligned to the curriculum and selected to accelerate outcomes and levels of engagement for students
  • to assist teachers by building their confidence and capacity to implement the Digital Technologies curriculum. Support materials facilitate planning, teaching and assessment, and include materials suitable for other learning areas.

Education Services Australia developed both the educational and technical solutions for the Hub.
