The final draft curriculum for the Australian Curriculum subject Technologies is open for consultation from 19 February to 10 May 2013.

This consultation period also provides an opportunity to give feedback on the overarching aspects of the Technologies learning area (including the learning area Rationale, Aims and Organisation of the Technologies learning area). ACARA encourages participation from all stakeholders with an interest
in technologies.

Following consultation, the draft Australian Curriculum: Technologies Foundation to Year 10 will be revised. A draft will be available for public viewing from September while the curriculum is finalised for ACARA Board approval. Subject to Ministerial approval the final Technologies curriculum will be published on the Australian Curriculum website in late 2013.

This session is to gather feedback from TASITE members and others, to represent the views of educators who have interest and experience in teaching within the broad area described as "Digital Technologies". Participants will be expected to have read the sections of the draft curriculum relevant to their interest and experience. The responses will be collated and submitted as TASITE's response to the consultation process.

The structure of the responses expected by ACARA is given in the consultation survey.
