"What do our kids need to be digitally literate? And how can we help them?"

These questions were asked by Sandy Phillips, Digital Learning Practice, Victorian Department of Education and Training,

during her address at the recent School Library Association of Victoria Conference, Making the most of data: collecting, visualising, applying (http://fuse.education.vic.gov.au/Resource/ByPin?Pin=YD5YPP&SearchScope=All).

The objective of the Victorian Curriculum’s Digital Technologies (DigiTech) Learning Area is to empower students to move from being confident users and consumers of digital systems to being discerning and creative problem solvers. Teacher librarians have a major responsibility here.
