    Kia ora tatou, this week Enabling e-Learning (VLN) hosted an informal discussion in Adobe Connect about Digital technologies in the national curriculumIt wasn't part of the consultation process, rather a chance for us to chat about the drivers for change and implications/challenges for teachers and organisations as we introduce and implement the newest parts of the Technology curriculum.

    Thank you to all those attended (big thank you to Tim Bell for attending as well). A rich discussion ensued where we realised being part of a bigger learning community is invaluable as we lead changes in this area. Feel free to watch the recording, The People Share: Digital Technologies | Hangarau Matihiko draft discussion and on-share to others who couldn't attend.

    Also feel free to add your own comments in this thread, Enabling e-Learning forum: Digital technologies in the national curriculum or carry on chatting here, we'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences as well as we dive deeper into Digital Technologies | Hangarau Matihiko draft.

    This was a really good webinar to listen back to- thank you.

    I really liked the discussion around what are the drivers for change and the positive influences of digital technologies in society. This brings it all back the 'Why' and the importance of connecting with all of our learning community (students, teachers, whānau...) to have a shared understanding and be more informed about how we move forward.
