Our values over the day (based from Tātaiako)

Ako - Today we will have an opportunity for reciprocal learning. Please give people the opportunity to share their thoughts and mahi.

Whanaungatanga - Make yourself known and build relationships with people in the room. Please make everyone feel welcome.

Wānanga - We are all here to share, learn, kōrero. Beliefs may be different but we respect that we all have something to contribute. 

Manaakitanga - We expect everyone to respect each others language, culture and identity. We all have equal opportunities here.

Tangata Whenuatanga - Affirm that Māori learners have a place in Digital Technologies.

Catering will be covered and delicious (we think you deserve to be treated)

Setting the scene

Introduction to the tools


Time to have a play, with support from facilitators

He pātai ā koutou? What questions do you have?

2:45 finish

There is no minimum requirement of skill using a computer. We would require though that participants come along with a device and a school email address they can use. It may be helpful to come along with the type of device used with students to support learning. 

Facilitator: Arnika Macphail comes from a teaching background which includes work as a teacher aide in a mainstream school and also a special school. In her years as a facilitator, she has come across a number of Teacher Aides who have not felt confident to use Digital tools with students, and who have not had the time to be able to learn.
