'Are We There Yet?' Revisiting The Digital Education Revolution, Kathryn Moyle Dec 2014

'Are We There Yet?' Revisiting The Digital Education Revolution, Kathryn Moyle

Professor Kathryn Moyle

The directions being promoted in the Australian Curriculum in relation to teaching and learning with technologies, have been dated and out of kilter with directions being taken overseas, including Australia's near neighbours of Singapore, Hong Kong, the Republic of Korea and New Zealand (Moyle, 2015). But the Australian Curriculum does build upon a spasmodic history in Australian school education of incorporating technologies into students' learning at school. This paper provides a summary of the peaks and troughs that can be seen in this spasmodic history, by using the $2.027 billion, Digital Education Revolution (DER) as a landmark policy ...

Currently, over 16,000 Indigenous students and 13,000 non-Indigenous students located in 260 Australian schools are involved in an Indigenous language program. More than 80 different Indigenous languages are taught. This project sought to present practice which would strengthen the quality of Indigenous language programs in schools. The report consists of a literature review, a mapping exercise to document current practices relating to Indigenous languages in Australian schools, an analysis of existing models of teacher preparation, and six case studies of good practice examples.

David (Dave) Tout

In their chapter on numeracy, the authors begin by exploring the many terms used to describe the learning of mathematics by adults. They discuss the relationship between the terms "mathematics" and "numeracy" and explain why numeracy--making meaning with numbers and mathematical processes--is the term they chose for their overview. Moving on to examine adult numeracy education in the U.S, the authors find that little attention is paid to the development of math skills among adults in Adult Basic Education (ABE) research but that adult numeracy education is prominent in practice. They highlight the development of practitioner groups that share ...
