Revised technology learning area

The New Zealand Curriculum Online – Technology

The Ministry of Education has revised the technology learning area in The New Zealand Curriculum. It now includes two new technological areas:

The goal of this change is to ensure that all learners know about digital technologies and understand the decisions people make when they use them and create them. It’s important that students have opportunities to be innovative designers and creators of digital solutions – moving beyond solely being users and consumers of digital technologies. We want them to be able to critically assess the impact of existing and new technologies on society and the environment.

While schools are expected to incorporate the revised learning area into their curriculum in 2020, we expect that change and implementation processes will continue beyond 2020.

The goal is to have students experience a rich curriculum that engages and challenges them, is forward-looking, and inclusive – and as a part of that they know how to use and create digital technologies.
