Australian Technologies Curriculum for Comment

The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has issued a draft "Shape of the Australian Curriculum: Technologies" paper for comment by 3 June 2012. This was prepared by Professor Lyndon Anderson and the Technologies Advisory Group, to set the direction for technologies curriculum to years 12 in Australian schools, with release of a final document by the end of 2013. Unfortunately I could find little actual content in the document to comment on. This contrasts with "Computing: A curriculum for schools", and other documents prepared by the UK Computing at School Working Group, which contain concrete proposes for education, supported by the British Computer Society, Google and Microsoft.
