Pedagogies that integrate information and communication technologies can engage students in ways not previously possible, enhance achievement, create new learning possibilities and extend interactions with local and global communities. (MCEETYA: Learning in an online world - Pedagogy Strategy)
Students live in a technological world where information and communication technologies (ICTs) are integral to everyday situations. School curriculum should provide learning and assessment opportunities that allow students to inquire, create and communicate with ICTs, and to use ICTs safely and responsibly to manage, store and locate information.
The Essential learnings for the ICTs cross-curriculum priority support planning within and across year levels. They outline the knowledge and skills that students require to become competent, productive and creative users of ICTs at key learning junctures.
The Student ICT Expectations is a resource that may be used by teachers to assist the implementation of the Essential learnings for the ICTs Cross-curriculum priority. The resource supports teachers to select and plan ICT learning experiences that are challenging and relevant for students.
