Digital Technologies represent an ever changing force in our world – change the way that we engage socially, how we do business, and how we innovate. The Digital Technologies learning area represents a fantastic opportunity for our next generation of students to move past capabilities in using technology, to developing literacy in creating technology. This represents a shift were students gain awareness of the problem solving processes that underpin the creation of technology, and are able to harness that power to drive innovation in new technologies that can change the world around us.So how can we teach this problem solving process in our classrooms? What key pedagogy underpins this? What are some of the key learning and teaching issues we should really be aware of? In our work with the CSER Digital Technologies MOOC, we are starting to explore such ideas, working with a community of teachers to help understand how we can think about Digital Technologies education in the primary and junior secondary spaces.
