Digital Technologies curriculum will be adopted by eight schools in Wodonga, Australia

A group of eight schools in Australia affiliated to the Wodonga Federation of Government Schools, received a grant worth $25,000 AUD to adopt a new “Digital Technologies” curriculum. The new program will be delivered to students up to year 10, and will provide them with skills such as robotics and 3D printing in order to prepare them for the digital economy.

As a first step, more than 20 teachers from these schools have already attended workshops to learn strategies to share the new curriculum. According to the Federation digital technologies leader Scoot Nugent, it is critical for teachers to have a strong understanding of coding, hardware and robotics in order to support the students throughout the learning process.

Additional $25,000 AUD will be provided to businesses in the area to promote further education opportunities for students after graduating.
