These are just some of the many questions bouncing around in my head and I know that there are groups, such as state ICT leadership and those in organisations, such as Google also exploring similar topics!
Not to mention there are a range of other topics to be unpacked, such as assessment, pedagogy, learning activities among others.
I would love to hear the challenges that you face in your context and if/how your community is going about to support teachers with new computing curriculum. Email me at rebecca(dot)vivian(at)adelaide.edu.au if you would be happy sharing with me!
