    What will schools look like in the future?

    Public discussion Created by Tessa Gray

    Part of the Kia Takatū ā-Matihiko Self Review Tool is asking us to reflect on Te Tahu or a mindset - in order to; recognise how introducing DT curriculum content can be/is part of our learners’ and community's future. If you're completed the survey already, you may also be leading these developments in your own school or kura.

    How are you supporting others to have a mindset or 'readiness' to implement Digital Technologies | Hangarau Matihiko? Are there any media/video clips you're finding useful to use as conversation starters? Please feel free to share these below. 

    If you want to take the 'wow, far out' approach, here's a starter...Rethinking how we "do school" from Trevor MacKenzie's blog.

    You can share the hyperlink or embed the video directly as a reply. See Instructional videos for more details or contact me (click on my profile) for support.

    Really exciting to see the opportunities we can offer to our learning village.... in order for their voice to be part of the creating digital technologies rather than only being users of digital devices!

          Here's a wee classroom snippet from America. I saw/heard a lot of the Key Competencies in this piece. 

          At the end, the news reader adds, says in five years there will be 1 million more computing jobs than students graduating with computer science degrees.

          What does this mean for us in Aotearoa?

            Great resource for teachers.  An eye opener for incorporating Digital readiness in schools.

              The videos were informative and I now have a better understanding of how DT fits into the NZ Curriculum. I'm looking forward to the next toolkit.

                I really liked the videos explaining digital images and how pixels work. Alos the videos by students talking about how they got in CS.

                  Great videos, with good examples.

                    The videos bridged a gap that older people have connections with the younger technological pathways being established - we are all on this journey together!

                    The Rotorua gathering was very informative and I highly recommend watching this for a guided curriculum explanation - in te reo Māori and English


                    Looking forward to Digital Technologies learning

                      I also liked the videos. I thought it was sad that the people in the examples shown were not formally exposed to digital technology until they were at university. I think we are teaching in an exciting time where tamariki will be able to have this as a part of their school life right from the very start.

                        Kia ora @Adam.Baker1, @Tineke.Dippenaar and Kelly Gaston thanks for sharing. I'm wondering how people are engaging with the videos? ie: On your own, with a buddy, in syndicates, during staff meetings?

                        Everyone needs to create some time to view these to take in key messages, seeing as teachers are time poor, any great suggestions to help get the most out of viewing/engaging/discussing the Pīkau content?

                          I found the videos engaging and very effective.  I look forward to continuing my learning.
