JOBS FOR THE NEW ECONOMY: INVESTING IN STEM
 
Technology is changing our economy.
 
For Australia to win the future, we have to be a high-skill nation.
 
STEM disciplines – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – will be central to the jobs of the future, and people with these skills will be well positioned to succeed in the future.

Summary

The Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE) has made clear through a number of forums, and in a variety of media that it welcomes and fully supports the inclusion of the Technologies Learning Area and ICT as a General Capability in the Australian Curriculum for all students from Foundation to Year 10 (F-10).

The ACCE is particularly supportive of the introduction of Digital Technologies as a compulsory subject for all students (F-8). Individuals affiliated with the ACCE and its member state and territory associations have taken active leadership roles in all stages of this subject’s development and review.
