    Te Kura o Matapihi 3

    Te Kura o Matapihi, a beautifully located rural kura, just 7km from Mount Maunganui is doing some amazing things with hangarau matihiko (digital technologies). Principal Tui Yeager and whānau want their ākonga to be steeped in Te Ao Māori, fluent in Te Reo Māori and also skilled with the use of digital tools.

    Tamariki are taught to; collaboratively think (Te whakaaro), design (Te Tipuranga), create (Te Puawaitanga) through a process of design thinking, and use hangarau matihiko to tell and re-tell their stories. Ākonga use Māori narratives threading history, culture and reo into their digital artefacts; these include digital stories, games, animations, music videos and more.

    Ākonga are also learning about hangarau matihiko and are taught computational thinking skills (te tupuranga whakaaro rorohiko) through coding and designing interactive games in Scratch. For a teaser, see one of their Scratch examples, Te Koauau a Tamatea based on the journeys of Tamatea and how Porangahau - a little place in Aoteraoa got to have the longest place name in the world.

    Look out for the full school story, when Enabling e-Learning publishes this in the Enabling e-Learning gallery (TKI). For more on design thinking as a process, see Design thinking in the curriculum (VLN).

    Story telling is a great way to integrate digital technologies. Are you telling/retelling your own stories, local stories, stories of Aotearoa with/through different mediums? I'd love to hear more smiley
