Enabling schools with digital technology and teachers with digital skills means expanding the learning environment. It entails using new and innovative ways to provide teaching services through a mix of physical and digital learning environments.

It is important that the Department of Education (the department) has strategies in place to ensure digital literacy is embedded in the way schools operate.

In our audit Enabling digital learning (Report 1: 2021–22), we presented key facts about the department’s technology infrastructure and the connecting parts at the school end.

In this new audit, we will build on this information and present key facts about the use of emerging educational technology in schools, and teacher capacity and capability.
