Hangarau hei hāpai | Making a difference

Do you want to develop skills in digital technology? Are you interested in creating learning experiences from a Māori perspective?

CORE Education will be running three free online workshops that show kaiako how digital technologies can be combined with Māori knowledge and technology. These workshops will be delivered entirely in te reo Māori.

Hangarau o mua – ki tua will explore the links between computational thinking, digital outcomes and te ao Māori. Kaiako will take part in practical experiences that they can use with their learners.

Hangarau o mua – ki tua is powered by the Google Educator grant and facilitated by CORE Education.

Learning outcomes

Educators attending the workshops will learn how to teach ākonga to:

  • Use a culturally relevant design process.
  • Tell stories, engage communities, and present information using digital technology.
  • Undertake digital technology projects that make an impact in the community.
  • Identify and understand the links between digital technology and te ao Māori. 

Kaiako will develop skills in design, digital artwork, audio and video editing, physical computing, and basic programming. By the end of the workshops, kaiako will have gained the confidence to develop and teach digital technology learning experiences from a Māori perspective.
