Our workshops have a focus on filling your own kete of digital tools that you can take back to your school and implement immediately. It will support kaiako to assess and strengthen understandings of the new digital technologies and hangarau matihiko curricula content within the classroom. We will clarify misconceptions around the Hangarau and Technology curriculum areas, and how you can use these in the classroom to enhance what you are already teaching, rather than thinking of it as something else you have to teach.

Sessions will include a play and experiment component with a range of computational thinking concepts as well as digital tool exploration. Our facilitators will unpack the progress outcomes of what teaching, learning and evidencing can look like at each level with examples of supportive content and links to the museum context. These engaging innovative experiences will assist planning to empower both teachers and students to make informed decisions about the tools that support current learning contexts as well as new ways of learning.

Opportunities will be given to split into working groups focussing on alignment with the NZ Curriculum and Te Marautanga O Aotearoa. By working with our facilitators you will build understandings of how you can weave the revised technology and hangaru curricula content and the concepts of computational thinking for digital technologies | Te Tupuranga whakaaro Rorohiko and Designing and developing digital outcomes | Te Tupuranga Tangata me to Rorohiko.

Learning Outcomes for this workshop include:

  • Build understandings of the revised Technology and Hangaru curricula content
  • Explore a range of digital technologies, computational thinking concepts and how these can be used to enhance your existing class curriculum
  • Strengthen understandings of how to weave the learning through the classroom curriculum rather than be a separate subject.

This meetup will be delivered in English however the content will be really beneficial to kura Māori also. We invite all Māori Medium kaiako to attend as the skills and knowledge covered in these sessions are relevant to Māori Medium contexts.
