New NSW Syllabuses

Programming

 
The Board of Studies NSW has also developed an online programming tool called Program Builder to assist teachers in planning and programming. Program Builder allows teachers to select outcomes and content directly from the NSW syllabuses for the Australian curriculum to dynamically create scope and sequences and units.
