    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.

    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.

              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

                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 also really enjoyed the videos with students sharing experiences. Found it really powerful that students 'by accident discovered the career pathway. The videos about exploring the jargon and how different aspects could be introduced to students were really awesome.

                        I found the videos on why this matters to be effective as people need to know why in order to be properly engaged. I also enjoyed the perspectives of the students and how they valued the importance of being digitally literate.
