The Mind Lab’s Digital Passport team is proud to introduce Digital Fluency Playing Cards, an innovative card game pack to help all Year 1-10 educators navigate the new digital technologies learning areas of the New Zealand curriculum.
These playing cards have been designed to support your learning as you integrate digital technologies into your classroom practice. Wherever you are in your learning journey, these cards offer exciting ways to further your development – and have some fun while doing it!
The cards can be used in a number of ways.
1. Single cards: one card can be taken from the pack and used to suggest a learning task.
2. Card suits: a group of related cards might be used to provide a series of learning tasks. Various games could be used to find these groups.
Cards are grouped in the following ways:
You can use these suits to play various games to collect related hands of cards that could be used for classroom tasks. Made up a game of your own or as a school? Send us the rules and we’ll feature it on the site!
