Teacher Readiness Programme

  • Client: Ministry of Education 
  • Partnered with:  Cantebury University, Core Education, Kia Atamai Educational Trust, DTTA – Digital Technologies Teachers Aotearoa, Te Papa
  • Mission: Deliver a teacher digital readiness programme for Digital Technologies/ Hangarau Matihiko to schools nationwide.  
  • Outcome: Kaiako felt empowered to teach Digital Technologies/ Hangarau Matihiko nation-wide.

The teacher readiness was focussed on supporting kaiako and teachers in both Māori and English medium schools to understand the revised Digital Technologies – Hangarau Matihiko curriculum. The purpose of the readiness programme was to ensure kaiako feel confident to teach the curriculum so that our tamariki know how technology works, how to code, using computational thinking to solve problems and ultimately prepare learners for the ever changing digital world.

The programme was delivered through facilitated workshops across the country and AATEA focussed their efforts in Taranaki, Hawkes Bay, Whanganui and Te Rāwhiti. During the Covid-19 lockdown, workshops converted to be online and online support sessions were created to support teachers as they began to implement new curriculum materials. In addition to this, AATEA developed online resources to enhance the learning process.
