    Public discussion Created by Helen Cooper

    Please join the conversation - we meet in person for the Sofa session in Breakout 4, Thursday 11:15-12:45pm in the Arena Lounge Level 1 (turn right s you go up the stairs). The panel includes: Fiona Grant from the Manaiakalani Trust;  Chris Dillon - Cambridge High School, Janelle- Riki- Waaka - CORE Education and Michael Howell a student from Lynfield College.

    Please use this space to ask questions, share thoughts, ideas and provocations for the panel and for us all to ponder. We will be focusing on all aspects of the impact of digital technologies on learning, and the implementation of the new digital technologies strand within NZC and TMoA. Key questions that will form part of the sofa session discussion with invited guests will include:

    • How important is it to understand more about Digital Technologies in the modern world? 
    • How might Digital Technologies strengthen the home-school and school/ community partnerships?
    • How can DT create opportunities for learning that don't otherwise exist for learners?

    Whether you are feeling confident or new to the concept of digital technologies as part of our curriculum, please share your thoughts, queries or challenges.
