"Under Australia's newly proposed Civics and Citizenship national curriculum, students are expected to be digital citizens. That includes using Twitter, blogs and websites, such as Facebook, to study. If adopted, the curriculum would be mandatory for students in years 3 to 8 and focus on the country's culture and history. Students also would be taught skills, such as problem solving and research."
