The Technology learning area has been revised to strengthen the positioning of digital technologies in The New Zealand Curriculum. The change provides a greater focus on students building their skills so they can be innovative creators of digital solutions, moving beyond being users and consumers of digital technologies.

The new strands we will focus on are 

“Computational thinking is about understanding the computer science principles that underlie all digital technologies, and learning how to develop instructions, such as programming, to control these technologies.”

“Designing and developing digital outcomes is about understanding that digital systems and applications are created for humans by humans, and developing knowledge and skills in using different digital technologies to create digital content across a range of digital media. This part of the curriculum also includes learning about the electronic components and techniques used to design digital devices."
