[Voiceover - Tara]
At my last school, we could work together online which really helped if you got stuck on a subject or if you were doing a homework assignment together. That doesn't happen here. It's probably because the internet is so slow.
In the future, every student will have equal access to digital communication and learning tools wherever they are.
[Voiceover - Tara]
My first assignment was about endangered species in Australia. I found my old friend Louise online and we are working on it together. It's so nice to feel connected even though we live so far apart.
The Schools Digital Strategy will ensure students will not be disadvantaged as a consequence of geography, accessibility or access to technology and are supported in their learning journey and receive an engaging and safe education experience that supports their interests, strengths and development needs making sure they have the right skills for future work.
