Kia Takatū DT4HS | Pou Rarama Auckland

Dec 6, 2018 - Dec 7, 2018

DT4HS | Pou rarama (based on the University of Canterbury's CS4HS) is a collection of workshops focused on preparing New Zealand educators for teaching the Digital Technologies achievement standards for NCEA (particularly computer science and programming). This event is particularly focused on people who have no background in computational thinking and computer science, and are teaching these topics for the first time, or would like to go over the basics really carefully.

Outcomes for teachers

Participants will -

  1. Explore the NCEA level one computer science standards, covering human-computer interaction, algorithms and compression.
  2. Have a gentle introduction to programming based around the languages Scratch and Python (which are popular in NZ high schools)
  3. Be given an overview of level 2 and 3 NCEA Digital Technologies standards

Ko te reo Pākehā te reo kawe i ēnei hui ā-kaupapa heoi anō he nui tonu te whaihua mō ngā kura arareo Māori. E pōhiritia ana ngā kaiako Arareo Māori kia uru mai kia kitea e koutou te hāngai o ngā pūkenga me ngā mātauranga ka kapia i ngā awheawhe ki nga horopaki ako Arareo Māori.

Key focus

The PD landscape for DT in NZ has changed a lot, with a rich range of offerings now available. This workshop will be aimed at teachers taking their "first steps" in teaching Digital Technologies, particularly the less familiar topics in computational thinking.
