Its been a busy holidays.
The first week involved a meeting in Wellington that brought the providers of the Digital Technologies Hangarau Matihiko curriculum together. This was an important meeting that allowed for the first time to meet and share their experiences, as well as what they are looking at.
The following days involved me down in Christchurch at the DT4PD conference. This brought together the Regional Hub heads to be able to talk about and listen to what is happening in the regions. This has been important to get this up and running to allow teachers to be able to come together to share, develop and strengthen their understanding.
I ended the week by visiting Code Club Aotearoa, it was the launch of an amazing project that they have been working on which enables students to start understanding the Internet of Things and how they can be a part of it. There is a story available on stuff about the initiative. https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/107446441/futuristic-growing-technology-for-school-garden
I am interested in how we could get one for our own school garden, or do we make our own?
