    Digital Technologies Workshops are offered through 2019 by TASITE on behalf of the Australian Computing Academy (for the University of Sydney).

    The workshop is a full-day training session to prepare teachers F-10 to teach the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. The workshop provides an introduction of the concepts and goals of the Digital Technologies curriculum, as well as providing teachers with practical programming assistance to deliver the new curriculum in their classrooms.
