We are using a new curriculum called the Victorian Curriculum. The Victorian Curriculum has introduced Digital Technologies. In Digital Technologies (DT), students use computational thinking and information systems to analyse, design and develop digital solutions. The DT curriculum recognises that coding (programming) as one of the skills to support learning in this area.
Across all primary year levels, all students need to undertake at least 10 hours of coding as part of their DT learning.
At Karoo, we are committed to ensuring that our students meet all curriculum requirements and have the opportunity to excel. We hope to offer a club throughout the year relating to coding.
