    Authentic Contexts
    25 August
    Public discussion Created by Lisa Hargreaves

    Hi Everyone

    I'm interested in what schools and teachers are doing within the new curriculum that is authentic by nature. As part of my Reflective Journal for my Masters on Effective use of Digital Technologies in the Primary Classroom, I'm including a table that gives teachers ideas for 'authentic' contexts for CTDT and DDDO. Apologies if I have missed a discussion on this already, if you could please respond with any ideas on 'authentic contexts' that would be much appreciated.


    Kia ora Lisa and welcome. I'd love to hear some more stories from schools as well. For example, Whakarongo School has a curriculum delivery that incorporates Technology Learning area and design thinking. See PDF example here.

    In the meantime, these edSpace threads might help too?

    And you might like to join Kia Takatū ā-Matihiko's online community, Ngā Kiriahi for more conversations and examples of Authentic contexts and with end users in mind...
