For Schools

Hands-on Workshops and Professional Development

Our Digital Discovery Centre here in Taupō makes for a great venue to explore a broad range of digital tools that you could use in support of teaching Digital Technologies or Hangarau Matihiko. We have a suite of Raspberry Pis, heaps of electronic components, two 3D printers, 12 Edison Robots and we even have a coffee machine!

Our expert facilitator, Ginette Van Praag is a registered teacher and has more than 17 years experience teaching and leading in this subject area, teaching students from year 4-13 in a range of school settings. Ginette is also an accredited PLD facilitator and can be engaged to work with you, your team, your school or Kāhui Ako, to develop a coherent programme of learning in this new subject area.

For more on Ginette, please visit our About Us page.

We are committed to delivering the best and most effective PLD that will enable your students to become connected, creative and collaborative in their understanding and use of Digital Technologies. Inquire about our DT / HM PLD facilitation today.
