Why have we created Digital Passport?

In June 2017, Minister Nikki Kaye announced that Digital Technologies would be fully integrated into the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa from 2018 onwards, and that The Ministry of Education requires all teachers to be able to deliver key competencies in digital technologies by 2020. The new content covers two key areas, computational thinking and designing and developing digital outcomes. You can read the full details here.

‘From 2018, Digital Technologies & Hangarau Matihiko will be integrated into the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. Our education system is changing in order to best equip our children and young people to participate, create and thrive in this fast-evolving digital world.’ Ministry of Education factsheet.

In response to this, The Mind Lab created Digital Passport to arm teachers with the required information ahead of time. The course covers computational thinking and designing and developing digital outcomes as well as 12 additional complementary modules and downloadable classroom resources.
