The Digital Technologies | Hangarau Matihiko curriculum content is currently in draft form and will be embedded into learning environments across New Zealand from the beginning of 2020. The new and revised curriculum content for Digital Technologies within the Technology learning area is now available for schools and kura to introduce into their teaching and learning programmes. This seminar will introduce the revisions to the Technology learning area, unpack the two new Digital Technologies areas, and connect the supports of the learning area for developing and planning learning programmes from years 1-10. After this seminar, participants will have some foundations to support thinking and direction for curriculum design, and have the opportunity to put the ideas into practice in the workshop that follows.
Teachers and leaders working in years 1-10 who want to find out more about Digital Technologies | Hangarau Matihiko and how they can integrate the digital technologies areas into their teaching and learning programmes.
The workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to understand how the new digital content relates to the revised Technology learning area. We will explore exemplars and have hands-on activities. Participants will be able to collaborate with others and create an action plan to introduce the digital technologies areas into their teaching and learning programme.
