Digital Learning

Why Digital Technology is important for our tamariki:


As our world keeps changing, we need our young people to be creative, confident, connected and actively involved lifelong learners. Tamariki today are Digital Natives, born into a world that relies on Digital Technologies. They need to be given the opportunity to connect with each other, to learn new skills and pursue their interests further than has ever been possible.

At Tawhero School we provide:

  • Teachers who are offered PD in teaching Digital Technologies
  • High speed internet
  • 1:1 devices
  • Chromebooks for Years 2-6
  • i-pads for Year 0-1
  • ipads and robotics - programming
  • Learning to code - computer programs
  • Digital Technology integrated throughout the curriculum

"The Digital Curriculum is about teaching children how to design their own digital solutions and become creators, not users of, digital technologies, to prepare them for the modern workforce." Chris Hipkins, 2018 (Education Minister)
