Monday December 16, 2019

The new Digital Technologies | Hangarau Matihiko curriculum is to be embedded into all schools by 2020, so now is the time to ensure you and your school are utilising the latest teaching methodologies to ensure your school's and student's success.

As part of SIGNAL's commitment to enhancing New Zealand's tech capabilities, we have a limited number of  $2000 EDUCATE Professional Development Scholarships for Digital Technologies teachers at all levels within NZ. 

The $2000 scholarship covers almost all study costs, including fees and the University of Canterbury student levy, leaving only a small contribution from the school or teacher to cover the 3-day on-site intensive in Christchurch 20-22 April, 2020.
