These are exciting times for your children in education as they share, develop and communicate using available Digital Technologies. Students today need the knowledge, skills and confidence to make Digital Technologies work for them in school and beyond. Moreover, students will need to be highly skilled in using the technologies to build towards higher or more advanced learning. Digital Technologies are an essential component of the Victorian Curriculum.
