What is DTTA?
The Digital Technologies Teachers Aotearoa is an association with the goal of advocating for our subjects. The aim of the association is to create a community of teachers where we can share resources, communicate and speak with one voice to get our subject area recognised and supported.
DTTA was formed for the following purposes:
- Strengthen, encourage and improve the teaching of a broad range of Computing, Digital and Information Technologies in New Zealand secondary schools.
- Promote, advance, support and guide teachers of a broad range of Computing, Digital and Information Technologies (herein after referred to as “the subject”) in New Zealand secondary schools.
- Facilitate, negotiate and foster links/consultation between teachers/educators and government institutions on any matters relating to the subject.
- Assist in the development, maintenance and review of the subject guidelines.
- Promote the education, professional development and up-skilling of its members.
- Assist teachers of the subject to keep up to date with current practice, and tertiary and industry developments.
- Promote and advance the profile/image of the subject to students, government and educational institutions, IT professionals/organizations, industry and the public.
These things make up the Mission of DTTA.
