Digital Technlogy at Mānuka school
VISION : Inspiring today's learners for tomorrow's world ...
“The digital curriculum is about teaching children how to design their own digital solutions and become creators of, not just users of, digital technologies, to prepare them for the modern workforce."
Digital Technologies in the National Curriculum
The Technology learning area has been revised to strengthen the positioning of digital technologies in the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. This is for all students from year 1–13. Students have the opportunity to specialise from year 11–13.
The goal of this change is to ensure that all learners have the opportunity to become digitally capable individuals.
The change provides a greater focus on students building their skills so they can be innovative creators of digital solutions, moving beyond solely being users and consumers of digital technologies.
At Manuka School all students have access to digital devices.
Our senior students use Chrome books and ipads and our junior classes have 15 ipads each.
We adhere to strict polices and procedures around Responsible Use of Digital Devices.
