Program Description

Transition is a big stage for students moving from primary into secondary education. As students adjust to their new school and classes their transition needs to be a positive experience, so that their wellbeing is maintained, and their learning is coherent and continuous.

A digital transition planning tool has been developed to support and enhance students transitioning from Year 6 into Year 7. Through the Digital Transition Plan, schools will:

  • have access to student transition information in a timely manner
  • inform the strengths of the student cohort, learning interests, intended destinations, career interests, and school interests, for the following year
  • support every student in making a positive and informative transition that encompasses this process.
Program Outcomes

Through participation in the session, teachers and school leaders will:

  • have an overview of the Digital Transition Plan platform
  • explore resources to support transition in your school
  • build ICT capability in the use of the Canvas Learning Management System
