Recently we hosted a discussion thread on, Breaking down Digital Technology progress outcomes for CT and DDDO looking at PO1 for Level 1 and 2. Today we take another look at the terminology and intentions for Progress Outcomes 2 (CT and DDDO), and link to new content material and examples of practice from across Aotearoa.

CT Progress outcomes

NZ teachers are always quick to connect and share new learning together. A great example of of this can be seen in the DTTA community (Digital Technologies Teachers Aotearoa) where educators like Sarah Washbrooke are sharing resources they have created, CT Activities Document for Classroom Teachers linking Digital Technologies POs to curriculum contexts and inviting teachers to use these in their classroom, while tech leaders like Zoe Timbrell (Co-Founder, OMGTech!) are sharing Google presentations and inviting teachers to use these with their colleagues. Feel free to join the DTTA community to find out more and get involved.

In this video below, we talk to Gretchen Badenhorst and Joey McGrath about an interactive Google site they have created with Jeanette Irons and Julian Latimer, PLD to Integrate Computational Thinking into the Year 1-10 curriculumThis group of talented educators have created this site for teachers to use, so they can 1) get up-skilled with the Progress Outcomes for Computational Thinking (terminology language, intention, examples) and 2) use this as a teaching resource. For example, see the teacher guide for Progress Outcome 2. They also invite you to join the Google + community to chat some more.

Technology Online (TKI) showcases exemplars and snapshots of learning for Progress Outcome 2 and Enabling e-Learning (TKI) continues to share stories of how digital technologies are integrated (utilised/created) across the curriculum in both schools and kura in the Media Gallery.

Kiatakatū ā-Matihiko, the National Digital Readiness Programme is releasing new interactive media in online pīkau (toolkits) everyday and hosting regional ahikāro (meet ups) around the motu for teachers who are new to this mahi, or in positions of leadership in their schools (pouahi).

In the meantime, if you’re still wanting to see what CT and DDDO looks like in the junior years, check out the Year 1-3 documentary winners for the MADE (Media and Digital Excellence) awards 2018 from Rāwhiti School (Christchurch). Amazing!!

Whatever part of the journey you are on, we know you have resources and requests of your own, please feel free to dive in and share these below.
