Digital systems

The Kookaberry is a digital system on a board. It assists teachers deliver Australian Curriculum Technologies content descriptions for Years 5-6 band, and Stage 3 outcomes in the NSW Science and Technology K-6 Syllabus.

ACARA Technologies Content Descriptions (Yrs 5/6)

  • ACTDIK014 :  Examine the main components of common digital systems and how they may connect together to form networks to transmit data
  • ACTDIK015  Examine how whole numbers are used to represent all data in digital systems
  • ACTDIP016: Acquire, store and validate different types of data, and use a range of software to interpret and visualise data to create information.

STAGE 3 NSW Science and Technology Syllabus Outcomes (Yrs K-6)

  • ST3-11DI-T:  Explains how digital systems represent data, connect together to form networks and transmit data.
  • ST3-2DP-T:  Plans and uses materials, tools and equipment to develop solutions for a need or opportunity
  • ST3-3DP-T:  Defines problems, and designs, modifies and follows algorithms to develop solutions
  • ST3-1WS-S:  Plans and conducts scientific investigations to answer testable questions, and collects and summarises data to communicate conclusions
