Digital technology and the internet are ubiquitous in the lives of people across the globe. With that reality in mind, school education is required to embrace a number of new learning challenges if it is to meet students' employment and social needs. Technologies like the internet, support new forms of learning, based on "bottom-up principles of collective exploration, play and innovation" (Selwyn, 2013, p. 198), which encourage learning through authentic activities and interactions. Not only is technology about engagement in teaching and learning in school classrooms, it is changing the way that education occurs. This circumstance is reflected in the Australian Curriculum (AC), which is now more differentiated, more collaborative and more creative because it considers the opportunities for technology in student learning.
