Mapping to the Australian digital technologies curriculum

As you can see below, we have mapped our 12-week STEM entrepreneurship program for students from 7yo - 17yo to the digital technologies curriculum. We have purposely identified elements of our program and how they fit with different classifications under the digital technologies category. We hope this is a useful resource for you to show how you are addressing different parts of the digital technologies curriculum.

Specific Curriculum outcomes covered:

Year 3/4

ACTDIK007 Digital Technologies Knowledge and Understanding - Identify and explore a range of digital systems with peripheral devices for different purposes, and transmit different types of data
