Year 7 & 8 Technology COP

In 2021 we are excited to be offering the Technology Community of Practice (TCoP) free, to all schools, Kura and Kāhui Ako across Canterbury. 

What - Four full day (9-3pm) hui, 1 each term

We have listened to your feedback, ideas, and needs. By signing up for the four hui you will be supported in the areas and practices that you have identified as important to you and your learners.

Across 2021, the four days will support your practices in: 

  • moderation 
  • assessment for learning strategies 
  • local curriculum development

And how these are underpinned by cultural capability and digital fluency 

Why sign up?

The TCoP aims to enable teachers and leaders to collaborate and develop quality technology learning experiences for all ākonga in Ōtautahi. 

Each hui will provide:

  • Collaborative activities
  • Workshops that develop your understandings
  • Confidence to provide quality learning experiences 

When & How

The Technology CoP involves four hui (1 per Term) and a 1:1 mentoring session per term in your kura to support your goals. 

TCoP 2021 dates are: 

Term 1: Thursday 18 March, 9.00am - 3.00pm
