What is the Digital Technologies Curriculum?

The technology learning area of the New Zealand Curriculum has been revised to strengthen the positioning of digital technologies in education from years 1-13. The goal of this change is to ensure that all New Zealand students are given the opportunity to develop as digitally capable individuals.

Not designed as a means to simply teach students how to use digital devices, the new digital curriculum content is about providing students with a developed understanding of the computer science principles and programs that drive digital technologies, enabling them to be innovative creators of digital solutions.

Your classroom of the future

To provide a classroom of the future capable of delivering the outcomes necessary for the new digital technologies curriculum, your school must have the right practical applications in place.

Are you ready for 2020?

Your school must have the tools and environment necessary to accommodate and deliver on the three key strands of technology.

Technological Practice

Includes but is not limited to developing a range of outcomes such as concepts, plans, briefs, technological models and fully realised products or systems. Students also learn to consider ethics, legal requirements, protocols, codes of practice as well as the potential impacts on stakeholders and the environment.

Technological Knowledge

Students will develop technological knowledge specific to technological enterprises and environments and in relation to how and why things work. Understanding the different parts of systems and how they work together will be essential to understanding how and why systems operate the way they do.

Nature of Technology

Students develop an understanding of technology as a discipline and how it’s inherently different from other disciplines. Over time they grow to appreciate the socially embedded nature of technology and can engage with current and historical issues, as well as explore future scenarios.
