Digital Technology

As of 2020 Digital Technologies is a part of the National Curriculum. Technology is one of the learning areas in the National Curriculum. Digital technologies are now integrated into this section.

There are two aspects in which children learn through a series of progressions:

  • Computational Thinking

"Computational thinking enables students to express problems and formulate solutions in ways that means a computer (an information processing agent) can be used to solve them." - NZ Curriculum

  • Developing and Designing Digital Outcomes

"In this area, students understand that digital applications and systems are created for humans by humans. They develop increasingly sophisticated understandings and skills for designing and producing quality, fit-for-purpose, digital outcomes. They develop their understanding of the technologies people need in order to locate, analyse, evaluate and present digital information efficiently, effectively and ethically." - NZ Curriculum
