As a teacher in today's secondary schools, you will be required to create tasks for students that involve digital technologies where students communicate in ways they know or are familiar with. This also provides students with an opportunity to write for an authentic audience. One of the purposes of this assessment task is for you to gain practice using a blog as a learning tool. For this assessment task, you will create your own blog account (use or or and write four blog posts in response to the questions below. You will need to draw on the readings and resources in the learning topics and wider research to support your discussion or posts.
Word Count: 2000 - 2500 Words. This includes all text (headings, in-text citations, captions and direct quotes). It excludes the Reference List.

Four (4) questions:
* What are some of the literacy and numeracy demands of the 21st-century?
* Effective teachers understand how students learn. What is culturally responsive literacy and numeracy teaching? How can teachers use students' 'funds of knowledge' to teach literacy and numeracy in a particular subject?
* What are the Literacy and Numeracy Capabilities in the Australian Curriculum and what does this mean for teaching in subjects other than English and Mathematics?
* What is disciplinary literacy and numeracy? Choose a subject other than English or Mathematics and describe the subject-specific literacies and numeracies used in that discipline/subject area?
