DT4HS | Pou Rarama FREE event series starts next week!

Worried about how you're going to teach the new technology learning area to NCEA level 1? You are not the only one! Come to one of our FREE DT4HS | Pou Rarama two day events and we will help you get ready. This is an opportunity not to be missed!


A teacher who attended a previous event shares her experience below;


“Like that I am not the only one feeling anxious about the changes. It made me feel more comfortable that there are many others in the same boat as me. It provided reassurance and gave me the courage and confidence to speak about the issues I would otherwise feel inadequate to discuss”


These meetups are led by Professor Tim Bell in partnership with the University of Canterbury:


Tim is a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at the University of Canterbury. He is in demand internationally helping teachers understand new computing curricula. He has received many awards for his work in computing education.
