Updated DigiTech Scheme of Work

May 17, 2022

As more teachers are looking to integrate digital technologies across the curriculum within their classes, we are delighted to share with you some exciting updates and new features that have been added to our DigiTech Scheme of work. To further support the delivery in school, enhance the impact of lessons and reduce teacher workload, we have updated the lesson plans, included editable downloadable slideshows for every unit, included supporting videos for teachers, updated our knowledge organisers, prior learning and future learning overviews, concept maps to gather information before teaching the units and\or after completing it and quizzes to review students' understanding from the unit, all to ensure that you can teach digital technologies, support ICT competencies and further students' learning across the whole curriculum with confidence.

Education for a Connected World Framework

Jan. 20, 2020

In a world where technology is moving at a fast pace, it is more important now than ever to teach online safety in schools.

With consideration to the 'Online Safety Curriculum Connections' on the ACARA site and our ever-increasing globalised digital society, Australia should be thinking about ways they can enrich their curriculum to teach a deeper understanding of online behaviour in their lessons. Students need the knowledge and scepticism to evaluate new developments, regardless of what device they are using.

Our Education for a Connected World Framework document complements the Digital Technologies curriculum, which covers the principles of online safety for Early and Primary years of schooling, with progression in the content to reflect the different and escalating risks that students face. Many themes are covered such as self-image and identity, online relationships, online bullying etc.

Sound scary?

Well, this is where Purple Mash can help you.
