The core objectives of the Schools Digital Strategy are to empower schools, help school leaders plan their digital journey, build their school's digital capability and achieve their teaching and learning goals.
These guiding principles are being used to test and refine SDS planning, based on an ongoing partnership with schools, to ensure the right support and resources are delivered.
As part of that process, a series of school-based consultations have been conducted, comprising baseline research, interviews, and workshops.
From these consultations, the high-level 'blue book' which introduced the vision of the SDS is being used to frame tailored local 'green handbooks'.
Each local green handbook represents the key concerns, interests and priorities of the school or schools involved, linked to a set of measures that can be implemented individually or as a group.
Below is a selection of these SDS green handbooks developed with school leaders around the state. Over time, these local planning tools will be developed into a set of digital innovation models.
Each model will match the needs of schools of a particular type, size, location and demographics, with proven strategies packaged for schools to adopt and adapt. Check this page for regular updates.
Handbooks in production
Handbooks are being developed with school leaders covering Connected Communities Schools; Small Rural Schools; and Schools in Distinct Settings.
Schools in Distinct Settings refers to Schools for Specific Purposes (SSPs), Youth Justice schools, Hospital schools, Agricultural boarding schools, Environmental Education Centres, and Intensive English Centres.
