Technology has become part of almost every aspect of our work and personal lives, and as its capability advances by the minute, students within your classrooms will face completely different careers prospects to their parents and yourselves. As a teacher you can have an immense impact of your students through opening their minds to the possibilities of digital careers. Your students are constantly connected, can have every question answered instantaneously and have never had to hear the screech of an internet ‘dial up’ tone…or had to trawl through an entire set of Encyclopaedia Britannica for that matter!
As a key driver to their future lives and careers, you have the opportunity to encourage your students to create things that have never ever been thought about, help them discover new and exciting ways to improve our lives and to make what might currently seem impossible a future reality.
Google Maps, Wi-Fi technology, and the Black Box inflight recorder are Australian creations borne from digital careers. In addition to leading the world in some of our most advanced future digital discoveries, Australian students have the potential to be part of a future career that is personally fulfilling, exciting, diverse and financially rewarding. And it can start with you.
