What would higher education be like if all high-schoolers could write simple software, type at high speed, handle data and apply computational thinking? The Australian Curriculum for Digital Technologies (AC:DT) is now a discrete curriculum for students from pre-school to year 10. Students are also undertaking standardised testing online and this is affecting skill development. In the session, we will describe the AC:DT and standardised online testing and share discussions on the impact for students transitioning into higher education.
