In the Nova Scotia Science curriculum, digital and media literacy expectations fall under the general curriculum outcome of Science, Technology, Society and the Environment (STSE). These include “the skills required for scientific and technological inquiry, for solving problems, for communicating scientific ideas and results, for working collaboratively, and for making informed decisions” and ” attitudes that support the responsible acquisition and application of scientific and technological knowledge to the mutual benefit of self, society, and the environment.”

Teachers should also note that individual lessons often satisfy a number of learning outcomes.)
