Abstract: With a current emphasis on coding in the media, other components of the Australian
Digital Technologies Curriculum often get pushed aside. This session will explore practical ideas for
teaching the following concepts: Data (representing, managing & analysing), Digital systems
(understanding & using), Algorithms (coding), Information systems (how and why people use them)
and Safe and ethical use of the online environment. Practical ideas will be provided for each concept
across Reception to Year 6. I believe that viewing resources across a range of year levels provides
teachers with a more holistic understanding of the Digital Technologies Curriculum.
