Digitech Roadshow

Coming up fast. Don't miss out!

The DigiTech Roadshow 2017 is a series of six one-day events held across New Zealand, exploring key themes and concepts of the fast-changing digital technologies landscape.

In 2018, digital technologies will be recognised as part of the technology learning area of the New Zealand curriculum. Let CORE prepare you for this important development by leading you on a journey to increase your understanding of digital technologies. Together, let’s develop and test ideas that will engage students in problem solving, creativity and critical thinking.
