"There appears to be a limited choice of electives. I have included some suggestions that I feel will support educators in the ability to undertake their role. The use of technology is a part of most educator's practice and teaching. We document information on children and have connections with families through technology. Please see the units below for consideration;- FSKDIG001- Use digital technology for short and basic workplace tasks FSKDIG002- Use digital technology for routine and simple workplace tasks FSKDIG003- Use digital technology for non-routine workplace tasks "
