In our review, we found a predominance of quality resources that were appropriately contextualised and maintained high integrity and overall accuracy in their support for the Computer Science discipline. We found that certain categories of content descriptors, such as the development of algorithms and programming content knowledge, and support for safe collaboration in online environments, were well supported. For many of these existing resources, supplementary materials may be developed to align the resources with the Australian Curriculum and support classroom implementation in Australian F-12 contexts.
However, we identified gaps in the support available for Computer Science resources within the Australian Curriculum: Technologies, in which we recommend the development of additional resources that complement those that are currently available. The set of recommendations in this report may provide guidance and points to consider for those developing resources for the Australian Curriculum: Technologies.
