What is Kia
Takatū ā-Matihiko?

Kia Takatū ā-Matihiko - the National Digital Readiness programme has been developed to ensure teachers and kaiako are ready to implement the new digital technologies content. The programme is inspired by the legend of Māui, his kuia Mahuika, and how the source of fire was discovered. Māui was curious, brave, determined and had a great desire for things to work a bit better. #belikeMāui Mahuika was reflective, patient and insightful. #belikeMahuika These are characteristics that teachers throughout Aotearoa can use to help ignite the future of all our tamariki so they can become creators and innovators of digital technologies, not just users.

Pīkau means backpack or toolkit. By the end of this readiness program (Kia Takatū ā-Matihiko) you’ll have a pīkau/toolkit of resources to use for teaching and learning the new digital technologies content.

Choosing pīkau/toolkit
At the beginning of each pīkau/toolkit, there is an introduction. It includes a video with information about what is in the pīkau so you can decide if it is the right one for you. Whether you are working on a pīkau at Hika | Ignition, or Whitawhita | Blazing in your digital readiness, we’ll have practical activities that you can implement into your learning space. You will also know how much time you should put aside to complete the pīkau.
