Innovative teaching for teachers

Monday September 21, 2020

Digital technologies impact almost every aspect of our lives and affect how we live, work, play, and most importantly learn. Teachers and learners need opportunities and support to enhance their digital technology skills.

SIGNAL's EDUCATE programme was created to support teachers to champion Computer Science and Programming subjects in schools, including the new NCEA Achievement Standards for Digital Technologies. EDUCATE also built on your existing experience as a teacher, allowing you to apply your learning in your classroom.

In setting out the 2020 Budget, Government announced that funding for the ICT Graduate Schools would end when the current funding agreements ended at the end of 2020. This means that the SIGNAL Collaboration will formally end then and in 2021, SIGNAL's EDUCATE programme for teachers of Digital Technologies will be offered through a range of courses at the University of Canterbury.
