Programming in the Australian curriculum: a rationale and a place

presented by

Associate Professor Dr Paul Newhouse

The development of the Digital Technologies curriculum for the Australian Curriculum has raised the perennial debate over the place of computer programming in school curricula.

This session seeks to provide a background to this debate and suggest a rationale for including programming, without exaggerating its role, or diminishing other important components of the Digital Technologies curriculum.

Suggestions are made for how the development of programming concepts can occur from early years to secondary schooling, along with appropriate tools to support children’s learning.
