Feedback from Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko consultation

To better prepare our nation’s children and young people to participate, create and thrive in this fast-evolving digital world - our education system is strengthening digital technologies learning in the curriculum.

The Technology Learning Area in the New Zealand Curriculum, and the Hangarau Wāhanga Ako in Te Marautanga o Aotearoa have been strengthened and the change will create a ripple effect throughout the curriculum.
