Information and communication technology (ICT) capability

There is a particular focus in English on ICT through the use and analysis of digital texts and the creation of multimodal texts. For example, students explore the effects of sound and image as they consider how ideas are communicated in digital texts. They use digital technologies when they access, manage, use, and critically analyse information and when they create their own texts, including those texts in digital form. They develop skills in reading, viewing, and responding to multimodal texts, and analysing the effects of the use of different mediums on meaning and interpretation.
