The Project

Our project, Implement a coherent NZC Digital Technologies teaching and learning programme for years 6-8+ with the Raspberry Pi , was funded by the Strengthening Digital Technologies fund and ran for two terms in 2017 with 6 schools in the Wairarapa region.

The project focused on action research in these key areas:

  • Teacher PLD
  • Learner engagement
  • NZC Digital Technologies Curriculum alignment
  • Sustainability

We took the following approach to implementing a coherent learner pathway from year 6-8+

7 Successful Approaches to DT Pedagogy

Learner Pathway

The teaching and learning materials you will find on this website have been developed with the above approaches firmly at the forefront. They have been developed for the Raspberry Pi, but can be adapted to the needs and facilities at your school.  Explore the website and get in touch if we can be of assistance.
