    Spotlight session: Creative, digital and competent learners in the Dt & HM Curriculum

     

    HOT: Everyone is currently either thinking about, trialing, dabbling or implementing the new Digital technologies curriculum content areas (Computational thinking and Designing and developing digital outcomes) into their localised curriculum.

    Are you interested in invigorating your class programme using the new Digital Technologies Curriculum to deliver your existing content? Good timing, Chris Dillon (Subject Specialist for DT and HM Online for NCEA) will be looking at the progressions from senior Primary through junior Secondary, and will explore learning in a digital curriculum - where learners are heading, how teachers can help to get them there, and ways to make transitions as smooth as possible.

    What are you excited or concerned about, while making transitions to engage with the new content? Why not share your thoughts about the needs/opportunities a DT | HM. We'd love to hear more.
