Abstract

Digital technology has been firmly engrained within the Australian Curriculum for some years now. The recent review of the curriculum has given even greater emphasis to digital technologies as an integral component for teaching content, developing 21st Century skills and citizenship across all curriculum areas. Hence, the question of whether students’ digital competencies are at a level that can embrace such integration, particularly from the point-of-view of their teachers is now pertinent. This study looks at how experience and confidence in Primary teachers' competency with digital technologies relate to their expectations of student digital technologies capability development whilst bringing into question the ability for teachers to further plan and integrate digital technologies across all learning areas as per the curriculum intent.
