"Be the best you can be ..."
Technology is changing fast and our education system needs to grow and adapt with it.
We are changing how we equip our children and young people to participate, create, and thrive in this fast-evolving digital world.
The world is changing quickly, we must change with it. The curriculum encourages students to look to the future by exploring such significant future-focused issues as sustainability, citizenship, enterprise, and globalisation. At Awakeri School this means:
Students learning to work independently, cooperatively and collaboratively to problem-solve and find creative solutions.
Community contextual learning and students taking action to influence their world now and in the future.
Understanding of global issues.
Students using a variety of digital tools to support their learning.
Creating entrepreneurial opportunities
The eLearning vision is to engage and empower all learners, whilst preparing them to be digitally literate, innovative and confident users of digital communication and creative tools, and active members of the global community. At the same time, we seek to balance this against the importance of experiencing the fullness of life beyond the screen.
What is Digital Technologies & Hangarau Matihiko
Digital Technologies & Hangarau Matihiko is about teaching our tamariki and children how technology works, and how they can use that knowledge to solve problems.
Once this new curriculum is introduced, our kids won’t just be using devices like computers and smart phones. The changed curriculum will mean that schools will be teaching our young people the computer science principles that all digital technologies are built on.
Your child will benefit from having these future thinking skills.
