ICT skills guide
ICT skills guide (PDF, 1.9MB) to help develop students' digital capability. The guide links to ICT learning activities from the Contemporary practice resource and aligns with the Australian Curriculum.
To successfully engage in online assessment, students need to be confident and capable users of ICT.
The ICT skills guide supports teachers with identifying opportunities to use ICT through their teaching programs.
Seven ICT skill sets are identified for online assessment. For each ICT skill set, the guide includes:
- curriculum teaching and learning where ICT can be used purposefully
- links to related learning resources
- considerations and tips for teachers
- question examples (screenshots) of how NAPLAN Online might use the skill in the four domains of reading, writing, conventions of language and numeracy.
Each activity and resource is age-appropriate and can be differentiated to suit learning needs and contexts.
