What you need to do…

We ask that you watch the Technology Online webinar as it provides a good introduction to the new Level Two achievement standards, and a foundation to the discussions moving forward.

Webinar and slides available at

You will also need to have access to the Level Two Achievement Standardsand Assessment Resources. These have been provided as a zip file.

Level Three Achievement Standards and Level Three Assessment Resourcesare available, but not the focus for DT2, this will be in 2020

Think about what a teaching and learning program could look like for your school, is there a natural flow of learning that leads to assessment, what type of teaching and learning will be needed to support the students, and what does assessment look like, single assessment or integrated assessment. Digital technologies Matrix.

The challenge for the day will be to stay on task. It is also a great way to meet others within your region and start to discuss what other forms of PLD could be developed within your region.

Please Note:

The DTTA Executive apologies for the short timeframe, but is operating under tight timeframes ourselves eg. the release of the externals, publishing of the level 2 and 3 resources, and the desire to get this out to people in an meaningful timeframe so that teachers can implement this as early as possible in term 2 onwards.

The main focus for the committee is to get as much information as possible out to as many teachers as possible and at the same time strengthen the regional development and grass roots of the DTTA community.
