Sharing what we heard in the Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko curriculum content consultation

Our education system is changing so that we can prepare our children and young people to participate, create and thrive in this fast-evolving digital world.

What’s changing? The Technology Learning Area in the New Zealand Curriculum will clearly outline the expectations for learning in Digital Technologies. The Hangarau Wāhanga Ako in Te Marautanga o Aotearoa will be revised to include Hangarau Matihiko. The change will create a ripple effect throughout the curriculum.

We have gathered all the feedback on the draft Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko curriculum content, and identified the major themes from those conversations.

The following three reports are now available to view:

This includes:

  1. the process we have followed in developing and consulting on the draft curriculum content
  2. once consultation feedback was collected, a summary of what we heard and what we’re doing as a result
  3. the next steps for the education sector to introduce the new curriculum content into schools and kura.
