Each fire or ahi in a pā would have had people caring for and tending the fire to ensure it would sustain everyone’s needs. Likewise there will be those in our schools and kura who will be leading and supporting their colleagues as they gain the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to be ready to implement Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko.
Kia Takatū ā-Matihiko refers to digital leaders as Pouahi and there is a specific course to grow them to lead DT & HM called Te Pā Pouahi. Pouahi who engage in this opportunity may already be exploring some new digital technologies and hangarau matihiko content with their students. Most importantly Pouahi are open and willing to share their own learning and support the learning of others.
Pouahi will gain a highly regarded digital badge after engaging in Te Pā Pouahi and they will play a vital role in establishing and leading future initiatives in their school or kura.
When you visit our website you can be assured that our Kia Takatū ā-Matihiko whānau will be with you at each step in your journey ensuring that you feel well supported and confident through the year and beyond.
